Hidden Antenna Connection?

Is there a hidden antenna or adapter you can get that will connect at the antenna end plug so you don't have to remove plastic and stingray to get to the radio box connection for the antenna? Hope that question makes since.

You only have to remove the upper left side piece to get to the antenna connection - 15 minutes max.

Ok that wasn't much help. How about an antenna extension cable - say 2 ft or three ft. Plug it into the stingray side then feed both it and the lead from the antenna back down the tank to under the seat area. Then you can access the connection any time you want. Just have to pull plastic once!

Thanks John. That is probably the easiest way. It's not much trouble removing the plastic I just didn't want to have to do it now. It is so HOT here in Dallas right now. Even with the fans on in the garage I have to drink more cold beer to keep cool. I think I will get on it this weekend.
