Radio antenna

I wanted to know if there is a way to make the antenna of my gtv stop from coming out when I turn my radio on!
I don't listen to the radio just cd's and mp3...
And i dont like the way my beauty looks with that stupid antenna sticking out! Any solutions?

Re: Radio antenna

Depending on the brand of your radio, some activate the aerial whenever the radio is switched on and some activate the aerial only when you use the FM.

The signal from the radio to aerial is just 12V, so you could put a small switch somewhere to interrupt that signal -or disconnect the signal completely (at the radio, or at the aerial). Or get a new radio

My aerial is 100% knackered, internally the motor fried after the plastic push-wire broke, so mine is always down. Looks better indeed and I also only listen to MP3/CD sources, I only miss it after the daylight saving twice a year -I use the RDS normally set the radio's clock.

Happy holidays

Only Crusoe got his work done by Friday

Re: Radio antenna

I just listen to my Ipod in my car its alot easier. For some reason CDs sound terrible on my Stereo. The radio is fine but i havent found anyway to control the settings on the CD and ive given up with more important things to do.
