IOf it has one of the diversity radios, the original radio will have 
two antenna connections; one is white, one is black.  One goes to the 
front WS (FM only) antenna, the other to the rear window (AM/FM) 
antenna.  You should probably use the rear...the manual defines 
colors, or someone on the group can tell you  (I forget which is 
which.)  In my experience, this rear window antenna is VASTLY 
inferior to a fender-mounted power antenna, which I have in hand but 
have not yet installed on my 200 - but I will.

Tucows.com (Ultimate collection of winsock software) on the web.  
it's decent, not earth-shattering.

It's that rear window antenna.  Kiss your AM reception goodbye until 
you put in a fender mount.
