Default Re: Sirius antennas

What you have there is the antenna used on the 2nd Gen (2006 thru 2010) PT Cruisers.

But luckily, you only need the one lead. I believe on this specific receiver that fits the 1st Gen PT, one lead was originally for Sirius and the other for XM. They are the same now. So all you have to do is experiment and figure out which one works. I'm using this same receiver and same antenna in my 2003 Dodge Quadcab right now. And it works fine.

Original setup:




Antenna I'm using on my Dodge Quad Cab. Works great:




PS: I've read that the old style two lead antenna is stronger and picks up better. This is not because it has the old XM lead but because of it's size and/or coil inside. But the one like you and I have worked out okay for me and looks better on the roof of my truck.
