OBDC & Antenna

Whenever you folks get info on where to protest the OBDC< I'm waiting 
for the info.  I think it's inexcusable to contemplate a modification 
which would 1) make it impractical for owners to work on their cars, 
and 2)  which would result in significant price increases without a 
significant increase in emissions control.  IMHO, *NEW* cars are 
already so darn clean that we ought to turn our attention elsewhere.

Got a couple of interesting notes about radio antennas.  One very 
intriguing idea is to try a cellular phone antenna for the radio to

other models mentioned today.  He says the rear glass has the AM 
antenna, and he recommends checking to make sure it's intact and 

Thanks for the sugestions.  I will check things out, and will 
probably try the cellular antenna idea.  It's just wacky enuf to 
work, even if the antenna wavelength may not be ideal.

Besides - then I could have a higher caliber of burglar casing my 
car!!  Wow!!!
