What is the black "fin" on top of the 07' Chevy Silverado's? I have seen them on other luxury vehicles, but I only like the ones on the new Silverados. It's not a "shark fin" like what the BMW's have, but it's similar. I want to know what is it used for, and can I get one to use for AM/FM radio only on my 06' Silverado? I don't like my current black antenna stick, and would much rather have the cool "fin" antenna.

Thats gay. Is there any way to use it for AM/FM radio only. And if I were to get XM radio, is it better than Sirius? I'll never have OnStar either, but I want that antenna cover :grrrrrr:

I don't think it will work for am/fm because I have an additional antenna for that. But yeah they do look pretty cool. To bad you don't have one :na: Just messin.

I'm not sure, but someone probably makes a terrestial antenna that looks like that. I'll look around.

Yeah, thanks finalday7 :rolleyes:
Wheres your separate antenna for the AM/FM radio? I only listen to one Rock radio station, and will never have OnStar, or XM radio. I just like the clean look of that "fin" antenna.

What about those antennas that are on the back windows of SUV's? Are those for the AM/FM radio? I'm looking for a cleaner looking AM/FM radio antenna!

The other antenna is still there as far as I know. I looked at a 2007 Trailblazer and it has the "fin" antenna and the old metal one as well.

Find anything? :neutral:

finalday7: Why have both antennas, XM radio gives you AM/FM radio channels. Why would you need both antennas up then?

Scosche offers an antenna that mounts inside the rear glass. Not a shark fin, but if the standard antenna isn't visually appealing to you.....

What about the antennas that are between the glass on the back windows in SUV's ect. Can I remove the black antenna stick in the front, and install the window antennas instead? Any links?
