I haven't found one that actually receives signal.

I got the antenna that's on The List.

Try getting the antenna off of a Honda S2000. It is a stubby antenna that is just a little bit longer that the above ones mentioned. Works pretty well for me.

My truck got in a battle royale with a parking lot arm and came out with a broken antenna. I am also looking for a replacement but I keep seeing the same poor reviews with the stubby antennas. I cant decide if I will just say eff it and not buy one at all. or got for a cheapo one just for sanity purposes.

and had NO issues, worked as well if not better than stock.
