confused Mine works perfect with an s2000 antenna.

Think about it: the s2000 antenna is an oem part from honda. It works fine on the honda, so why not on our cars?

what does the S2000 have to do with your radio?

do you think that it affects reception or something?

I guess my car must be really special - because I pickup a station on each and every channel... heck, I even pickup college radio stations while being 100+ away from them.

ie; I'm in San Diego, but can still listen to Santa Monica college radio... or while being in Los Angeles or Valencia and the surrounding areas, I still pickup stations broadcasting from San Diego and polka stuff from the Mexican boarders.

A little FYI - your antenna already travels at least 14 foot before it even gets to the rear of your car wave removing 2 foot of antenna by replacing the stock with the S2000 really hasn't been proven to make a noticeable difference

I know what you're talking about rofl

Anyway, I went ahead and bought, I know, I know, ebay is the devil, but $38 was a good deal. It should be here by Sat/Mon and I gotta figure out a way to install it w/o frying myself or the amp wink

If you remove the stock antennae, it goes out.

I TOUCHED a two inch screw to the hole, and it picked up reception. spineyes
