anyone put a shorty on their Bullitt, any problems w/reception?
I can't stand that telephone pole we have for an antenna. I went to MRT and their out of them, any suggestions as to where to buy one? What do they cost?

Shorty antennas work but you will not get reception as good as the stock antenna does. I listen to a radio station that is hard to get with the stock antenna in some places, with the shorty I would barely get it in most places. I used to switch back to the stock antenna at the track so I could hear the track announcer radio, after about 330' the shorty would no longer pick up the signal

I have one but living in my state with all the hills and mountains sometimes reception is not very good. When I go into OHIO or the southern flat states if works well. I also like the looks of the shorty.

I don't have any reception problems. Jeff just cut ours off and put that little back ball back on top.

I've got two cut antennas...

The Bullitt's is 14" and when it was on the Mach460, I had few issues, VERY Few. Now that it's on the Alpine, it works better than the Mach460 did with a full antenna....

The fiance's GT is cut to about 16", and there are no issues at all. She's on the Mach460.

I cut both of mine. Marked it and cut it with the dremel. Then I took the drill and kinda widened up the hole in the ball. Took a little JB Weld and stuck it all back together. Cleaned it up before it dried and then when it was dry I painted the whole thing with flat black paint.
