antenna

i have seen stuff on shortening the factory antenna and i was just wondering if anyone in here has done it. its a nice look, but i was wonderin how bad that would mess with radio reception... lets say if i made it close to as short as the roof line, maybe a little higher.

if the thread doesn't draw him in, Lowflyn has a shorter antenna on his stang, and it works just fine.. ask him about it.

Re: antenna

I haven't cut mine, but I do have a short antenna that is even with the roof line and my reception seems just fine.

Re: antenna

You can cut your factory one, or just break it off as I have seen done before if you know what you're doing. And no, a short antenna made no difference on reception.
