Re: foldable antenna?
See this posted all the time. My dealer showed me to just bend it into the rack and under a rung and cover it.
The dealers reasoning was they have NEVER snapped one by doing this, but said they used to remove them for all service for safety and found they become weak from off and on, and they were ending up replacing them on their dime. He said the design is not the best the way it all connects
It really is very simple and does not hurt it a bit.
Others have used the stick on hidden types with mixed results from what I read.
I have never seen a fold able but if you source it please post a link if you would.
Me, you just cant beat that big ol whip up there for reception. But that little round "puck" on the 2820 and the I-Pod have been getting some use, making the whip not very important to me, but you never know when you may need it.
