EXT: Home Made STUBBY Antenna 4 Less then $10.00

I WENT TO THE GOOD OLD PARTS STORE AND GOT MYSELF A CHEAP $9.99 FLIMSY ANTENNA. MY POWER ANTENNA LIKE MOST OF OURS DOES NOT GO UP OR DOWNFULLY AND ITS NOT WORTH TH HASSEL OF REPLACEING THE MAST I TRYED AND THINGS GET BROKEN VERY EASILY DUE TO THE AGE OF THE PLASTIC.

TOOLS NEEDED: ONE DREMEL TOOL WITH CUT OFF WHEEL!

HERE IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AFTER YOU HAVE TAKEN IT APART:

FIRST THING THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DO IS TAKE THE MAST AND TAKE THE INARDS OUT OF IT AND IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS:

AFTER YOU HAVE DONE THAT YOU NEED TO CUT BOTH SECTIONS TO YOUR DESIRED LENGTH LIKE I DID WITH MINE:


NOTE: I CUT MINE DIRECTLY IN HALF BECAUSE I LISTEN TO THE RADIO ALOT AND STILL WANTED SOME RECEPTION FOR IT, BUT DO AS YOU PLEASE BECAUSE ITS YOUR CAR

THE NEXT STEP IS TO REASEMBLE EVERYTHING LIKE THIS:


THE NEXT STEP WOULD BE TO RIP OUT THAT NOISEY CLICKING POWER ONE AND PUT THIS ONE ON.

Hmmm, not bad at all. Hopefully, reception will not be compromised...

this DIY looks great with Metra's rubber antenna. you can cut it in half (or even further), then chisel a tip, and sand it down with 200+ grit. i'll post pictures later. definitely worth the $7.50 i paid for it, and the reception is fine.
