Sorry, I looked at a photo that had only a coax (type F) antenna connector, but that is only for FM antennas. The one with optional AM antenna input has screw terminals.
But my idea for connecting across one turn of a multi-turn, tuned loop holds, but you connect that turn to the two screw terminals.
