If I were going to mount a radio antenna, I would use a small strip antenna. Do a Ebay search for "hidden antenna" and you'll see them.

Chris,
Most are running antenna I had one in #2796. I had it mounted in the trunk on the passenger side. I read somewhere on the forum that radio frequencies are not effected much by the fiberglass body. Worked for me ;)

I am using an amplified hidden antenna, it can mount under the dash, in the trunk or to the windshield, plus it's amplified, so it will get a better signal than just sticking an antenna under the dash or in the trunk. If you're interested I can point you in the right direction for one.

I put one in like UPONASHELF which I got for less than $15.00 (I think), from Circuit City. You can hide it most anywhere.

Why go radio when you can just throw in an iPod adapter for $50? I hate the crap they play on the radio and the crap commercials in between anyway. >=O

USC isn't on iPod yet and I had this thing about keeping "it" hidden. Of course hidden, at any price, didn't work worth beans. I was given this amplified unit by good buddy Freckles and stuck it in the trunk... problem solved, it is perfect.

1HSC,

You have what I am considering. How does that unit perform? I am considering using just the radio version, and getting Satellite Radio....

I mounted a regular antenna behind my passanger seat. I tried the amplified antennas both under my dash and in the trunk. For some reason I did not get good reception at all. Since I installed the regular sized antenna (it is collapsible) I have had absolutely no problems. I purchased it in black and I do not feel it is noticable at all.

The antenna that 1HOTSC has is the same one I'm going to use.
