I totally agree, That why i will keep the stock antenna. If the signal gets bad when traveling I can switch back less then 1min. Then replace once in near a city with a Stronger signal.i got worst signal when i switched but i live in the woods and not in the city and the station i listen to is north of DC and i am south of DC but as i get closer i do get better signal and works good but it is worst then the stock antenna .... so mileage does Varity
I don’t need a FM booster. This is just for Vanity. Totally Cosmetic. The stock antenna works fine. But the stubby antenna looks more better.
