DIY Car Stereo Antenna? Answered
Want to know if anyone has turned their roof rack into am/fm radio antenna or knows how?
Not how to mount an antenna on a roof rack!!!
I have a Jeep Liberty (2005), w\ (self) custom made aluminum roof rack. And I have 35ft of flexible/braided grounding strap to make internal run from roof-rack through and internally down to jeep frame if/as needed.
Outside rectangle frame is 1-1/2" (O.D.). I will rubber-coat all straight tube section then apply appropriate wire on to rubber and re-coat with rubber coating. I was then looking to slide slightly over-sized (I.D.) carbon fiber tubing over that. Ground and antenna wire will run through inside of rack turn down stanchion where bolts to roof. Rubber grommet to further insulate & protect wires.
I want super reception AM & FM, little to no visible footprint,
1. What wire or such for antenna is best/appropriate?
2. Proper lay out antenna wire? ie., wrapped around primary insulated tubing or laid out length-wise.
