It will have little effect on the FM band
However it will on the AM band as you move further away from the AM tranmitter.
An Auto antenna gives best reception if the antenna is above the car roof, Again on AM only.

Put on the shorty, slip in a CD It will both look better and sound better to boot:
Enjoy

I've not noticed any change in my reception. I bought a $5.50 universal unit, and it works fine.
