Hi:
I have a Sirius Stratus 5 for my motorcycle. I've ordered the m/c mount from tss, however they were sold out of the antennas with really short cables. The mount has a place for the antenna so all that's needed is about 12 inches of cable. Is there a way to cut a normal antenna and re-splice the connetor onto the shortened cable ?

Thanks

PM me your order number and I'll send you out the short lead antenna this one time :)
Splicing the other one is going to be a pain in the butt.

And, yes..FANTASTIC customer service..as well I had some other inquiries and emailed them. The agent in Bangor, ME was also awesome.
More businesses should follow the TSS model.
