    Can anyone speak to how these shorty antennas change the radio reception?

    I live in an area that isn't really flat and the transmission towers are about 50 miles away. It translates to crummy over the air TV reception at home and analog radio going fuzzy under an overpass, more hum than I think is normal, etc.

    I feel like my reception is kind of marginal with the standard antenna but I believe its mostly the quality of the transmission.

    I still don't want to do anything that will make it worse.

    I changed mine because it looks better.
    Also it was left over from another car, so it was basically free.
    I use SAT so this antenna is not used.
    If you want good reception, keep it stock.

    Don't listen to radio anymore so can't say mine also was just for looks and the 12.347 HP the lower antenna aero effect gives me. ;)

    I agree.
    Less drag equals more HP.

    If your reception is marginal now, the last thing you want is a shorter antenna. I listen to the radio a lot and would be inclined to install a longer antenna, if anything. I prefer function over form. :)

    I replaced mine with a Wesbrook one from Teamtorquesteer.co.uk
