Hidden Antenna

Anybody using "Autoloc" hidden antenna, or other brand? I'm putting on a tour pack, and this would be less money than relocating the antenna, I think. Thanks for the feedback.

I've heard mixed reviews about the hidden antennas. I think it depends where you live and where you're riding. My friend has one on his RG and when we ride along the coast and it's overcast, he doesn't get any reception. Overall, I prefer the standard antenna but the hidden antenna is convenient if you're taking your tour pack off and on.

Hidden Antenna

I do not have a tour pack, but wanted the cleaned up look. I put one on when the dealer was doing some warrenty work. I am not sure which brand as it was a last minute thing. It had the booster and it works pretty good for me. I have noticed the range is about 5 miles less then before, but that is not an issue for me.

I thought I read that you might lose your weather band stations with some brand hidden antennas. Something to think about if it matters to you.

I've been using the J&M Flexpower am/fm/wb antennae and have been very pleased. It does pick up the weather band, and I have not noticed much reduction in reception. I'm also using their Flexpower CB antennae with similar results. Very pleased. Dealer made a good recommendation on those.

I had a non-powered flexible antennae in my fairing prior to that and the reception was horrible. Powered antennae is the only way to go IMO.
