I shaved the antenna on my 87 supra. I'm using a $20 stick on window on my back window. I can hardly hear any stations. Anyone know of a better antenna?

I'm going to remove my windows, and use clear packing tape in place of them. I heard it's great weight reduction.

There's already a rear window antenna, at least on my 92 there is. I can pick up radio stations just fine with it.

My 1989 has the rear window antenna too. I think it was to improve FM reception with diversity between the two antennas, but I guess it's possible the rear window antenna is for AM only.

I replaced the "factory five footer" chrome power antenna with an amplified black 18" power antenna. Works pretty well, but with CD, DVD, MP3 and XM/Sirius who listens to the radio (other than AM talk radio) anymore?

Best,


Brad

My stock antenna came broken when i bought the car, I wired the radio up to the antenna that is on the back window, looks like defrost lines, and the radio sounds great

So drill another hole. . . Oh and a better, non oem antenna is any solid external antenna or an amplified electric . . .Jeezuz, if you are really cheap, strip some copper cable and use that. . .
