stubby antenna
 
do you get better or the same reception with a stubby?
is it just cosmetic

Just cosmetic. Looks a lot better than the stock fishing pole. My reception is about the same.

reception will not be the same. i used to get stations alot further with my stock antenna. it is still clear until you get into more remote areas. now i just listen to sat or hdd instead of regular radio.

It has stayed the same for me. I still get all the stations I use to get with my old antenna and it sounds the exact same... just looks a lot better :)

Reception definately suffers with a shorty (it's not awful, but noticeable). I bought a shorty, but the reception was iffy. Now I changed back to stock, but trimmed off about 8 inches. So I guess I run a middy.

In town its the same, no problem. Obviously with any antenna you'll lose reception the further rual you go, with the stuby I lose it a little quicker....so than I bought SIRIUS.
