  1. Foxes chewing aerial

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Has anyone ever had foxes (or cats) chewing their radio aerial on their car? I bought a new one not long ago as the nasty buggers ate their way through my old one... Now they've started on this one too. I don't particularly want to spend £35 every 6 months for a new aerial so thought maybe...

  3. Gtv OEM aerial position

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Would some kind soul please take a photo of the position underneath the boot lining of the OEM Hirschmann aerial for the Gtv (PH1 if it matters)? My car came without one and would like to know where it mounts, because I can't even find the connector, maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.

    Hi. Does anyone know if there's a bracket for the aerial to mount onto, on the inside of the rear quarter? Have bought a GTV with the aerial already removed, and an aftermarket one came with it but not installed. Comparing with the old one, it looks like it fastens in the same place, but...

  9. Normal Aerial or Dab

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Does the Gt aerial on the roof screw off the mounting . I suspect its corroded , because the signal I get wanders somewhat even on Local Radio. Am I better off putting a Dab aerial instead of replacing the roof aerial at roughly the same cost since my new unit is Dab enabled.
