There is no way the reception is great. Ever notice car antennas are for the most part the same size? There is a reason for that, they are "tuned" for those frequencies. A smaller (and much smaller at that) can and will not pick up those frequencies.

I like it too. I even had one on my truck. Reception sucked so I listened to my iPod most of the time.

You are both right, by cutting down the length of the antenna you do limit the number of wavelengths that can be accepted by the unit. That does not limit the stations it can receive, it just slightly decreases the likelihood of finding one with a clear sound at a a given location.

With The Stubby you will get all of your stations, if the signal is strong enough. The vast majority of our customers get perfect reception just like BadBlack, but in areas without a strong radio signal sometimes the reception will be improved by the whip antenna. It could be further improved by doubling or tripling the length of the stock antenna too, but who would bother? So, Dodge makes an antenna as long as they think you will deal with and it most cases it is much longer than it needs to be.

I hope that helps clarify.
