I went to an 18 inch and it DOES cut down on reception so if your out in the country away from the city stations you might have a hard time getting them

I have a 9" antenna and can get local stations. I very seldom listen to anything else other than my Sirius radio, so for me, it is just another piece of chrome.

Well I hardly ever listen to the radio, but why buy one? I used a hacksaw and cut mine so it is level with the height of the side mirror. As everyone else has said, you lose a bit of reception, but it doesn't bother me! My brother has done the same on his PT as well.
