Question

I was thinking of shaving the antenna when I do the doors... anyone know if these work?
AutoLoc Hidden Antenna
Are there better ones on the market? Or are they a waste?

I'm installing XM so I don't really care about FM, but if this works I might try it.
Thanks,
Martin

I shopped around for one and contacted several places and I never heard one good thing said about them. I've got XM so I don't miss my antenna too much, but it would be nice to have. If you find any positive reviews of one or if anyone here has had any good experiences I'd like to here them; it is something that is towards the bottom of my to do list.

this one is pretty sweet, small. I loved the antenna on my old gm it had it in the winshield but why not get a stereo that only activates the antena when the raido is on and re-tracks it when the cd or xm is on? unless you dont have a power antenna

Thanks for the responses.

I think I'll try the dakota digital when I get my new stereo installed.

Thanks again,
Martin

Someone posted a while back that hot rodders mount a regular antenna underneath the car along the frame. Other than a clip to hold the floppy end I can't see why it wouldn't work. I need to do something with my 9C1 since it will be about 2 years since the passengers fender was replaced and the antenna was shaved.

I plan on trying the under body mount. I will post back if I ever get around to it.

You can also wire it in to the rear defroster(unless you use it alot). Nissan sells most of their cars with either a single rear window antenna, or a body mounted antenna, and the window antenna. I also have a 2k1 Nissan altima, and it has the antenna in the window only, and it gets better reception than the caprice ever has (although I don't listen to the radio anymore).

I tried searching for a windshield antenna too. I know alot of the chevy trucks used to come with those, I'm sure they are built into the window, but I was supprised nobody makes a stick on one; that would be perfect.

The newer olds intriques have antennas built in the glass. It would be nice if there was a stick on version of it..
