Default Best fm ant 94 civic

My factory ant sucks. Do all stock ants suck or is it just mine. What is the best replacement. I am open to factory location or inside. Thanks.

I've thought about it too, but would you want to drill into the roof to install it? I know my Audi gets incredible reception compared to my Honda.

The only other way is a stick on one that is somewhat invisible.

I am not absolutely apposed to drilling holes, it is the interior wire running that I don't like. I just want whatever I use to work. I would put a stock one in again if somebody can tell me it might be better than the one I have. I have found in the past that antenna amps don't work , are there better ones out now?

I just went to autozone since the douche before me cut the cable under the dash. I yanked the whole thing out, sealed the hole and bought one off the shelf and installed it behind the dash. good reception, but I hardly ever use it since I have an aux port

For anyone still wondering, the antenna BeerDrinkin posted up worked like shit. It had much more static, and was not worth the time wasted on installing.

I really dont listen to the radio i have an fm ipod connect and just use that.
But i can tell you that if you dont pull out the whole antenna that the radio will suck on some stations

Is it an after market head unit? If so, I found you need a real good ground to clear up any electrical noise coming from anywhere in the car. What tipped me off to this is when the car was running, radio stations sucked and were of poor reception. Shut off the engine and just have the acc on, reception was good. Things like fuel pump, fan motor, blower motor, etc, can cause static in reception.

I know the 96-00 sedans have the antenna mount on the rear windshield, its actually part of the windshield. But reception is bad so I'm also thinking to find a amplified antenna.

Chances are you are having grounding issues or some kind of connection issue with the antenna. Maybe a had HU.

Correction 99-00 have the antenna in the rear window, 96-98 have the normal antenna.
