    Hey all.

    I tore off my antenna to the point where the entire unit needs to be replaced (too much damage to the inside threads of the mount). I was wondering if anyone has experience with a glass mounted car radio antenna? I have read countless threads about CB radios, but cannot find any about radio antennas.

    I'd like to go this route to avoid it from happening again and a roof or back window mount is not possible due to a truck camper.

    I'm also open to other options.

    Thanks in advance!

    Had mine replaced with a universal mount power antenna. The stock radio actually had the pins for this to work properly. If I remember correctly my installer just put a multimeter to the pins until he found the right ones. Works like a champ. Radio on ......antennna up. CD,Sat, etc. antenna down.
