  • Factory dual rear antennas

    Does anyone make a harness to hook up both rear antennas ?

    No harness but just found this en route to looking other things up.

      Thanks Dick,
      As it says "The right antenna has no lead in" I want a "jumper" harness to tie them together.

        It may make your worse reception rather than better. Have you tried doing this before?

          All antennas have a charisteristic impedance which must match to transfer the maximum signal down the wire. If you hook up both antennas, you will upset this value and get LESS sensitivity from your antenna system.

            Maybe I better just leave it alone.

              Consider it a spare in case the other one breaks. My dad used to tell me not to fix it, if it ain't broke.

                Any ideas on where to get just one instead of spending a fortune on the whole kit.Someone decided they wanted one of mine off my 58 Golden Hawk at the local Hacienda.
