So - with a fixed whip you can never go through a car wash??? Mine never worked since I bought the car a few months ago.. For some reason every FM station I care about here pulls in the same with the antenna up or down so I put it down. I'm doing suburbian driving but other cars couldn't do that??? AM is inop, but I can live with that. -meld Radiodog wrote: > These power antenna are pigs in colder climates, especially with freezing > rain.
