So I got tired of my radio only getting one station so I took my antenna off and installed an OEM Honda S2000 powered antenna base and modified it to fit my car, using my original antenna bezel. The new antenna base uses a different type of antenna so I got a Stubby antenna that measures 4 inches tall, opposed to my stock antenna which was about 2.5 feet. Reception is much better, due to the amplified base and I'll get a very very small improvement in my aerodynamic​s. Additionally this new antenna is thick aluminum and I screwed it down VERY tight, so I no longer have to worry about kids breaking it off or stealing my antenna. Both have happened before.

Before:

Thanks! I've only seen this mod done by two people and never seen it in person. I'm very satisfied with how well it turned out.

It might work. I had to modify both the S2000 hardware and my car's original parts. It took about 20 minutes and a Dremel to complete everything.

My brother once broke off Dad's antenna. He replaced it with one on a spring.

My brother is autistic and obsessed with flags. He used it to make a flagpole.
