I installed a new stereo system on my 88 TriStar and don't have a clue where to attach the antenna wire. The old radio just had a wire tucked under the glove compartment but with the new radio it does not get any reception. Did old TriStars and ProStars come with an antenna? If so how and where was it located?

On my tristar there is an antenna "stud" glassed in under the box I simply hooked my radio antenna lead to this.

My 94 PS205 has the antenna extended out across my legs under my dash. Maybe a PO installation....??

I ordered one of the flat wire antennas from Overtons (reminds you of the ones that come with a home stereo receiver). Mounted it up under the bow (out of sight and out of the way). May work if yours has a closed bow.

in my tristar the wire was attatched to a bolt that mounted the winshield to the hull. I plugged it in to the deck and got reception. it was a hoky looking thing but it worked.

Same thing with my 91.
