Re: Roof-mount antennas...

What about the "through the glass" mount antenas?  I haven't checked, but
I'd think you'd be able to get one that would work well in the FM frequency
range (100MHz).  I've been very happy with the 150MHz/440MHz one that I
have on my RX-7, and will probably install one in the new A4 along with
a 10M one as well possibly.  Then a cell phone?  At least they'll disguise
the radar detector.  :-)

The story goes:  This lady calls about having problems with her new TV
setup.  A repairman comes out and quickly finds that the external ant
isn't hooked up.  She says "The TV station is 30 miles from here.  I figured
it could make it the last 3 feet on it's own."
