In one of the first threads , They talk about popping the ball off the end and cutting the original antenna off . I did this and then wrapped the whole thing in heat shrink tubing just to give it a black look and I can do the spray paint thing.

It was really quite easy to do and it doesnt effect the reception at all ,plus it give you the opportunity to adjust the height to whatever you want,

I just cut my stock one down to 13" and the reception is still 100%

Cost = Free :D

Any recommendations for shorty antennas that maintain good reception? I have one now and the FM reception is good in most places, but AM reception is non-existent. This is a problem because all the baseball games are on AM radio.

I cut my factory antenna down to 12" after pulling the ball off the end. Used a hacksaw and file to taper the end after cutting. I filed and tested often to make sure the ball had a very tight fit, then tapped it on with a hammer. Easy mod and free!
