STUBBY Antenna

Yea yea, I know, I should know better for asking. But, which supporting vendor on the forum here sells small stubby antennas for the solstice?

I would like a 4 inch antenna or anything smaller. If there is nothing that small, what is the next smallest size up?

Thanks, and happy motoring.

Stubby Antenna

I know I'm a woman and all, But I want to also order the "O-Series" But I was wondering if I should select the Pontiac Vibe since they do not have the Solstice listed? And has anyone already bought this antenna?

Drove my baby right off the lot!

Do not select a car at ALL! just order the O's and you will be fine.
If you order the one's for a Vibe then you will have problems with them.
Here you have a couple of pictures.

Crappity Crap crap crap

Well I was not sure what to do and being the ever impatient person that I am, I ordered the "I-Series" and slected the Vibe. I've now put an email out to them and Im keeping my fingers crossed they will not send me the Vibe antenna.

Thank you for you help though, No harm no foul. I will just have to order another one.

The O-series on the website look much different than those on the pictures.
Please explain.

Maybe you're looking at the wrong pics? The pics of the O-series are the ones that LatinVenom posted, not the ones by BSpate ... that's a different antenna entirely. Also, kep in mind that the antenna acrews onto the base, so maybe the large base might be confusing you somewhat.

How long did it take to get them? I have zero patience.

The reception for this type of antenna is ONLY good for local stations, also remember I am in Florida, everything around here is Flat.
It took them about a week maybe less to send them to me.
Solstice Chica:
If you order the O series and mentioned the Vibe, it should still work, if by chance it comes with the screw already attached to the base, then take that screw off, once that is off it should work for the Solstice, if it does not come with the screw already in place then you are set to go.
Good Luck

Latin,

Thanks for the help. I did get an email back from the company letting me know that the "I" and the "X" are not compatible with the Solstice. Im trying to get them to change me order to the "O" Wish I had wait a little bit longer. But I guess I just gotta chalk that up to a lessen learned
