Has anyone tried a glass mounted ham antenna? I understand that some newer automobiles have "passivated glass" which does not permit on-glass antennas to work...what is "passivated glass" ?? does the Element have such glass??? Thanks in advance.
:?: :?

In my own experience and everything ive read thru the glass antennas are a total waste.

Ditto. "Passivated glass" or not, every thru-glass antenna I've had - hamfest special or major brand (Larsen) - has been a complete waste of money.

I run radios in my "E" from HF all the way up to 1.2 gig and I would never use an on glass ANT for any band. they Just don't work well and besides they look Like SH_t and work like Sh_t
