shorty antennas?

Hey guys. I would like a shorty antenna but how short can I go without losing reception. Someone has told me that I may have problems.


Thanks!

I'm hoping the radio stations in Iowa can find the 8". We don't have much in the form of "masses of people".

I'll have to get on that. Thanks man. I'm not sure when I would buy it, since I did just get subframes and lowering springs (Eibach Pro-Kit). I'd probably wait a couple weeks or a month. Then
