Wanting a shorter than stock antenna that actually improves signal. Is there such a thing? Anybody got one?

I have the 8 inch antenna. Works great. Got it from Americanmuscle.com for 19.99. The mustang antenna & F150 are the same .

Mine is a 12" black powdercoated one from JCWhitney. I think I paid around $20 for it. Definitely looks better than stock.

Some members went with this one, with very little complaints. I'm guessing it's the shortest one you can get that is still an antenna.

But the stubby does not increase reception? Is there one that does?
