Same. Mostly because it was hitting my garage.

I would have liked to have gone with a shorter antenna, but I use mine for double duty. Have a splitter on it so my radio antenna also serves for reception with my scanner. Picks up all the police and railroad frequencies just great.

Also live in a rural area so (one stoplight!) compromised radio reception is a no go even with satellite radio. Not to mention I already have a 3' fire stick antenna for CB.

I took my antenna off. All I have is the little magnetic antenna for my Sirius. I never listen to the local radio stations.

5' firestick, should have got a 4' instead.

We talking about cb antenna or stock antenna?

I guess we are talking about stock. My stock antenna is chopped off.

How does the ball come off of the factory antenna? I wouldn't mind taking the ball off and hacking the factory antenna 14" and reinstalling the ball on top.

Some have just taken it off, chopped the antenna and reinstalled. However, when I tried doing it that fuc**r was NOT coming off. I just used a plastic tip off an old CB antenna instead.

15" mast

http://www.ebay.com/itm/370791917302...84.m1439.l2649

I liked this one liked and read well to me, flexable stainless steel, it claims that others stay bent and their does not? I ordered one for my new truck that Ive not even got yet, lol. But the truck I demo'ed for a couple days hit the garge door and I cant stand that. Im suppose to pick up my new truck today and cant wait!!! My last 700,000 miles has been in Dodge trucks with the Cummins engines, loved them but ready for a change.

Sirius so no need for an FM antenna, and fiberglass fenders so the mount is gone too

AntennaX Euro short guy. Reception is okay, but a ton more sensitive to power lines / buildings in the area. I may try chopping my stock one down and seeing if it is any better.
