I read on here something else who did it. I barely ever use my radio only when the girlfriend is in the car and doesn't want to listen to my music. Is this possible without really affecting the car.. just won.;t be able to pick certain stations up? It already sucks anyways station that easily come in on everyone eles car suck on mine..

Re: (CANNIBALOFDOOM)

all antenna's are "loaded", and cutting it would destroy the "load" rendering it ineffective. my suggestion would be to buy a smaller antenna, or remove it all-together....or just leave it alone!

You can cut it without any problem. Just take a pair of wire cutters and cut it where the base meets the mast. Then take a sharpie and black out the white dot. There's not difference in reception whatsoever that I've noticed.

Re: cutting your antenna (CANNIBALOFDOOM)

any time your are maliciously damaging OEM parts its always best to include about 6 beers into the mix
1. unscrew it
2. cut off at desired length
3. color any white on tip with black permant marker
4. screw back on
your done.. it looks good and no one will know the difference..
take that 30 dollars u saved and buy a pet rabbit..
