Ghetto antenna repair

My antenna was snapped off at the base, and at $50 a proper OEM replacement is not at the top of my list. The solution? A fourteen-inch $12 flexi antenna from the local Strauss Auto. The base that came with this went into my “interesting parts for something” box, leaving the antenna with a protruding bolt on the bottom which screwed neatly into the stub of the old mast.

I am trying to avoid bothering with “for now” repairs on this one, but you can’t drive in NYC without traffic reports from 1010 WINS.

AM and FM reception is wonderful now.
