Default Hidden radio antenna...

Im thinking about getting this, because I hate the stock antenna location and want to shave it. What do you guys think?



Quote:
If you have had a bad experience in the past with hidden antenna's, so have we, and that's why we designed a universal hidden FM antenna that works! For a clean look on your Rod, Custom or Cruiser . Mount in any vehicle, Boat, RV or Motorcycle. The Tune Trapper antenna was designed to be hidden. Mount anywhere, in any position, in steel or fiberglass. Most vertical whip antennas are a 1/4 wave ground plane. The TT is a full 1/2 wave helical dipole, wound with several feet of wire and requires no ground. Each TT is hand tuned to resonance with special instruments. We use 95% braided sheild cable for virtual elimination of EMI electrical noise caused by engines, fans, wipers, etc. Beware of mini amplified antennas that make big claims. The TT antenna will not cause radio overload problems associated with amplified antenna's. These hand tuned USA made antenna's require no power. Your radio has all the preamp it needs built in, it's just looking for a properly tuned antenna to make it rock. Every TT is tested before being packaged. We guarantee it will perform.
It has a lifetime guarantee and looks pretty solid. Only $40 too..

I've used a few of those in the past, most recent was in my grandfather's coupe. Reception still is fine and you get a cleaner look. If your up for that, go for it.

wow. now is that a big deal. It seems that the hidden antenna pretty much replaces the whole setup of the stock antenna, without any loss. or so from what I understand from what little reading I've done about this prod.

Run a replacement antenna wire all around the roof of your car. Hidden under the headliner

I bought a Tune Trapper. It requires a Fark connector available from Maplins to terminate with the Jaguar coax. However, despite hiding it in the bumper, laying it the trunk, or on the parcel shelf, it only picked up the strongest signals.
Really disappointing because I wanted so badly for it to work. It won't replace the cortina aerial for performance unfortunately. Despit how ugly it looks, I've reverted to the stock aerial and binned the TuneTrapper.
