i came across that when looking for a kit to control my shave doors. my antenna is shaved also, so i don't have any radio reception.

anyone here use this antenna? any problems with it?

what are my other options (other than putting antenna back in)?

Many newer vehicles have the antennae built into the back window along with the defroster strips. This is probably an expensive (if even possible) proposition on a piece of glass not from the factory.

It doesn't have am hope you don't listen to any talk radio
ha... nah. just need FM. my daily commute went from 12 minutes to 120 minutes, so i need something other than the sweet sound of VTEC to keep me entertained and updated on traffic info.

anyone know if htere's anything like this with AM available? i just realized i might miss out on a ballgame or something. might be nice to have AM every now and then.

not for am that I know of...MZ...was talking about just getting an antenna and stuffing it in the car somewhere but this will actually (suppose to anyway) help your FM since you will need to put power to it.
Later,

if you're just worried about having radio reception and you had your antenna hole shaved, the cheapest and practical way of having an antenna is by getting the interior antenna and mount it inside on the windshield, behind the rearview mirror like what i did. clean and simple and works good. got it for $15 at pepboys instead of that autoloc thing. expensive.

Trick we used to do at Best Buy many years ago:

"The Hidden Rubber Ducky" (its a rubber replacement antenna thats about 12-18" long)

this antenna placed in the dash (typically just zipped it up above the glovebox or something), plugged into the radio led to acceptable FM reception.... $12 out the door, done deal

yea i was thinkin of gettin that autoloc hidden antenna, that is until i clicked on "add to cart" and saw that it was $69.00. my previous find before the autoloc one was the "window mounted antenna" by metra... who also makes aftermarket cd mounting kits and such... the metra antenna runs about 20... just never got the time to check buy it and install it...

The antenna I put in my last teg worked pretty good. It was from AutoZone or Advanced auto (all the same to me). It had a black box in the middle and two flat metal strips that came out the side for a total of 18" or so. I mounted it in the rear window about an inch from the top. Could barely ever see it and the reception was decent. It had a ground strap, but I didn't even hook that up as I didn't want to drill a hole in my hatch. Didn't seem to help reception anyhow.
BTW...I don't think I spent more than 20 bucks on it.
