    Hey everyone,

    Thought you'd like to see our latest truck antenna at TSS-Radio.

    Sorry for the pixelized image but there may be youth lurking about.:jj: You can see the real image and info with the link below the pic.

    New Interoperable Truck Antenna Non-Pixelized Image and Info

    In brief:

    • It works with XM and SIRIUS receivers.
    • It has a straight antenna connection but includes a right angle adapter as well.
    • It does not vibrate.

    We can't wait to hear how people describe this thing when ordering over the phone.:rolleyes:

    I may have to buy one of these for my grandparents. They travel all over the country pulling a 5th wheel camper; this would be perfect for them.

    Now is the whole like "shaft" the antenna or just the top? Because this looks like it would be great for home installs to

    The "Shaft" is the antenna. It's so funny looking in person hence the blocking out of it in the pic. It was such a joke we called it the "Dong" antenna.

    Now for the question. Do you still get good reception with a blowup doll riding it? I can see a trucker tying one to the antenna.

    We tested it out and that's just fine. :jj:

    do people actually get that many drop outs with the regular antenna? I have traveled basically the entire area east of KY, and have yet to have a problem...

    It depends on the vehicle (and area) really. If you have a trailer that is blocking out the signal then, yes, you will get a lot of dropouts.

    Like Davis said, it's the Semi Trucks that block out the signal. Plus every trucker we talk to explain how they go through a magnetic antenna per month. Then magnetic antennas won't last long with the conditions they go through. The Truck Antennas never seem to break or die. The only thing that happens is when people crimp the antenna cable or smash it in a door or window.

    How do you know which way Mel is? You have to make sure its aimed the right way.

    Does it not look like "the finger" to you?

    Oh, OK, I understand. No, it looks more like a vibrator than a finger to me.

    I don't see anything NSFW about that pic. It looks like a police night stick to me...:confused:

    After breaking the wire to two magnetic antennas by installing and uninstalling them on my tractor on a daily basis I zip-tied a home antenna to my mirror mount and the larger gauge wire has proven to be much more durable. I'd love to install one of these new antennas but can't be sure I get my tractor to use everyday so I can't mount anything permanent.
