Default Replacement FM (short) antenna

I don't use my FM radio all that much since I have Sirius.

Does anyone make a short stub antenna to replace the long stock wire antenna? Reception doesn't matter.

Sure would make getting into my garage easier!

Cravenspeed makes a nice one, just screws on in place of the OEM. I have it and I like it.

FM reception is ok near larger cities and towns. Anywhere else and it falls off really quick for me. I drive regularly between Lansing, MI, Detroit all the way to Scranton, PA and Philly. Definately a drop from the OEM, but with Sirius Traffic, NAV, Pandora, Ipod...who would willingly listen to commercials? I don't get it.

They are going to see a pretty rapid increase in orders I think

Just ordered one for myself as well
