Default Want to try a hidden antenna without breaking the bank?

This hidden antenna is available for $1.52 Plus 4.99 shipping for a total of $6.51 on Amazon.

Or you can but it here for $25.99 Plus I believe $10.00 shipping for a total of 35.99 at witchdoctors.

That is quite some markup.

You seem to have a real hard on for Witchdoctor, but I will give you this one. That is a pretty big mark up for what appears to be the exact same thing.

I tried this antenna. It worked just a touch better than removing the antenna all together. If both pieces are the same I would say either would be a waste of money, IMHO.

been thinking about this. Going to auto store buying a short rubber mast antenna and hide it under the faring. It should fit sideways

I tried both the hidden and short 14" auto parts antenna's was not happy with either. Both provided poor reception quality and much diminished range over the factory antenna. Put the factory antenna back on.
