Re: [DML] Fitting New FM Aerial



Hi Alistair

The early cars, I'd assume including yours, have a printed aerial in the 
windscreen. Although yours has some late features, it probably doesn't 
have the electric aerial inside the "fake" air vent behind the left 
quarter glass.

I experimented with a replacement amplified dash-mount flat aerial from 
Maplin and the reception was equally bad. The problem wasn't the aerial, 
it's the stereo. Cars with original Craig's and a proper aerial still 
have crap reception. My Kenwood gives excellent reception from my 
original windscreen-printed aerial. Suggest you think about a new stereo 
before worrying about the aerial :-) If you don't have the windscreen 
aerial, go buy a cheap dash-mount one (I stuck mine to the back of the 
glovebox - it's a fibreglass car after all :-) and the plug us a very 
simple jack style common to all stereos then and now.

#4426 (electric in rear quarter)
