"Since I almost always have my TD Top in lace" ... what do you use for seat covers, doilies? ;-)
My radio reception was poor, reason broken BAWM200 antenna ( not going to discuss reasons, that is touched somewhere else). I bought a 20$ Glass mount antenna from Advance Auto and mounted it between the windshield and dash ( THERE IS ENOUGH ROOM FOR IT TO FIT PERFECTLY). Remove windshield !!!! My reception went from 0 to 100 and View attachment 15663 Pandora did not lose signal once.
