Difference is, of course, the VG ones actually WORK :)

Yep. Mine works beautifully. Just as good as the whip!

It's just the universe trying to tell you something--"Sharkfins belong on sedans, stubbies are for wagons" :lol:

Sorry to hear that though :)

FWIW, my VG antenna that I bought FROM VG doesn't work THAT well. Not nearly as good as the factory horse whip. But I aint nevvah going back to that thing!

Did they mention that it was a non-functional antenna anywhere on the auction? Got a link to the listing?

Damn, I read over it, and in small print it does read "dummy" - I guess the antenna and I am a dummy, That what I get for $11 shipped

Does the sirus sat antenna work with reg radio - I do have an old magnetic one

I will attest to that one... several years ago, I bought a boxed set of DVD's, and they were all burned Chinese copies. What a rip. I paid $100 for it. Too bad I was sober when I got the package (and the charge on my account).

There is nothing but shitty mainstream music on the radio anyways so who cares if your antenna works? .... Just get an mp3 player to plug in your stereo.

Got to have my Talk Radio - I would get sirus back but my drive to work is 4 min.

Anyone rig anything up under the shark fin that worked

Theoretically a bolt and an aftermarket fractal antenna would be the same as what VG uses... but... finding a fractal antenna is difficult... lol





http://www.stubbyantenna.com/detail.asp?key=Stubby_Short_Antenna_A_Black - could you fit that under there?

Try just a bolt and some wire patterned on something that will fit underneath it for now...



even buy a simple metal antenna, screw it in, and break it off lol. Maybe cut your stock one... Depends on where you live...

How about bending your stock one into a loop that would fit underneath it?

Or... run a new antenna line that goes inside your car, and then just mount the antenna in the headliner somewhere... :D
