  • Power Antenna mod?

    Hey guys,
    I was wondering if anyone attempted to control their power antenna only when the radio is on, similar to this mod. In case you are wondering, this is for a system running Windows 7 and Centrafuse.

    Thanks,

    radio is on is vague...

    example, in RideRunner and Centrafuse, the radio is ALWAYS ON

    its a question of is it ACTIVE, then you would want to raise/lower your antenna
    (if you actually have an electric telescoping antenna, cars dont have them anymore)
    so if its a non telescoping power antenna, ie AMPLIFIED, just power it when pc is on, or when key is in accessory... no need to overcomplicate

      Thank you for the reply Mitch,
      For some reason I could have sworn that Centrafuse 3.1 turns the radio on when I press the radio button (I thought I could hear the relay).
      The power telescoping antenna in question is for a MKIV Toyota Supra.

        yes...it does.. but it wont turn it off, till app closes or suspend or such
        once on, stays on, and if radio was last source... it should start up with it on

        hmm, since u got a telescoping ant, yea.. u need some sort of relay, triggered by the CF, when radio is "ACTIVE" not sure how to do that in CF
        need a usb...relay

        like

        prob could make a simple plugin to CF3.1 to do it

        simple serial port commands

          Well, I could, if I knew C#. The plugin does sound easy, select a COMM port and register an even trigger for the radio state.
