  • Antenna question

    I'm sure it may have been covered b4 but where does one get a through the glass wireless antenna. Like the cell phone ones on so many back windshields.

    Tru the glass antennas suck. Just get a mag mount or trunk lip mount. What city are you from?

        You can't do the one without the other. If you want performance, you have to go fully external with sticking out "metal sticks".

        I have a window mount CB one (i can't stand the regular bulky trucker ones) and it works good but has a range of like 5 miles... at most. That's peanuts compared to the 15 most people who mount the big ones get.

          cool im from fargo! check ebay search for wifi antenna. Or better yet search this forum Wireless Communications. I would go with a magmount. If your worried about someone stealing it.

              IM also from fargo. What model antenna do you have? Why do you want to hide it. Having a internal antenna is not going to do you any good. Are you afraid someone will steal it? I have over dozen antennas on my car. I dont care. Mag mounts and trunk lips can all be taken down in sec's.

                  Glass Mount Antenna

                  I could be wrong, it happens often, but I think he is asking about how to install the antennas which pass through a hole in the glass in the rear windsheild. The cord is usually concealed in the headliner somehow and peeks out at the top of the rear windshield where it attaches to the antenna - going "through the glass".

                  Like this:

                  I think I know what you mean, but I do not know how to install them, maybe someone else does.

                    Through glass antennas do not actually go through a hole in the glass. And that antenna you posted is for a cell phone ergo it will not work for wifi.

                      Going through glass is only for inconspicuousness. The car is a 1966 impala... a cell phone in a 66 isn't that odd a real tiny wireless one i got from ebay is the 5.5 db maybe 6 inches tall I put that on my trunk its gonna look odd.... Maybe one as big as a cb antenna that one would look right at home.
