The transmitter already turn off, the current band for the ANT not able to pass thru the New freq  band.
We are not second hand dealer , all items we sell as used are tradedin from our customer and we don't rate it condition but for the buyer to decide on it own.
From time to time we may sell off some New but open up used for rental/standby/loan items and to ensure they cant be sold as Brand new , we will dispose off the box.
All used items will not come with cable.

I would think it's bcos of $$$.

I wonder why HDB didn't revive the master antenna system?
The master antenna can continue to deliver the FM radio / DVB-T2 / future FTA signals to the HDB homes.

I've had to dig up the supplied FM antenna for my AV amp. At least I have my tuner reception restored now. I wonder what they are going to do with the central antenna, if they are going to do anything at all.

I did the same thing. Recovered a vintage T-wired FM antenna and blutack to a wall to experiment.
Wifey frowning...hidden in a false ceiling would be better.The reception not that great overall, and 2
stations not listenable at all.
Definitely needs some form of FM signal amplification and direction adjustment, I think...
I still have a trusty old antenna amplifier (mains powered) to further try out with a car whip antenna
lying somewhere in one of the junk boxes. All local stations, may want to get rabbit ears type to try...

Do any bros here know where we can find a fm antenna contractor to fix a antenna and find the best strength. Currently using a terk. Not very impressed with the reception.

Nice NY gift from Shiathub!  :'( My 2 vintage sets fully recapped and serviced sitting dead. They didn't give fark for poor us. Looking back it was so nostalgic to flick a switch, instant clean mediacorpse radio and watch the dial illuminate.

Now trying FM antenna but no luck yet to get as clean signal.
Dipole FM Antenna - Ugly and shiat
Old Soundtech rabbit ear antenna with gain - Not satisfied with the static
Now on this Daiyo https://redmart.com/product/daiyo-digital-indoor-slim-passive-antenna-fm--dvbt-2-49824 - clean but not as clean like the wall signal
Still experimenting ...

I Had it before and is quite hopeless if placed inside the room. You would have to stick the antenna out to the open to obtain decent signal

used ST2 indoor last time. Not effective at all.
Switched to building antenna and works.
Indoor antenna depends how is your surrounding.
If surrounded densely with high building, only those rooftop antenna will work.

With this shutdown , in House analog radio is gone forever
