After a long search I ruled out finding a power antenna that would fit.
The problem is a lack of clearance between the body and the spare tire.
Left with a manual antenna, I get good performance from the original so I
stayed with it.

If you're considering replacing it because of a broken mast, you should
know that the mast is easily removed by unscrewing a cap at the bottom of
the antenna and the tip, and dropping the mast out the bottom.  I'm not
sure where to buy replacements, but I replaced one section of mine using a
donor set of rabbit ears (it's a pain, but I was bored that day).  It works
and looks as good as new.
