Customer Q&A

9 questions already asked

Q
Does the motor have a high current draw? Is a relay recommended?
[ Sam  Jan 08, 2020 ]
3 answers
A
No this is a low draw motor. Your radio operates it. Either up or down any wires needed will come off your head unit or radio to turn it on or off when needed
[ David  Jan 09, 2020 ]
A
I did not use a relay. So far no problems, functions perfectly.
[ Ralph  Jan 08, 2020 ]
A
No, it doesn't draw a lot of current and I don't see where a relay would be needed.
[ STUART  Jan 08, 2020 ]
Q
Can I make the antenna shorter?
[ Mikey  Dec 10, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
The internal construction would make that very, very difficult.
[ Cliff  Dec 12, 2019 ]
A
I don't think so. I have it connected to a RetroSound radio and it goes all the way up when the radio is turned on and all the way down when it is turned off.
[ Robert  Dec 11, 2019 ]
A
Mikey: It only goes all the up or all the way down. will not work with semi-auto switch. Good Luck
[ JAMES E  Dec 10, 2019 ]
Q
What is the hole size needed to mount this antenna?
[ Bruce  May 12, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
I can't honestly remember. I replaced my broken one on my 1968 Chevelle with this antenna and put it in the original hole on the back rear fender. the original hole was a little oversized, I would say 7/8 to 1 inch. hope this helps you.
[ DAVID P  May 25, 2019 ]
A
I didn't actually measure the mount, but I can verify that this unit fits the cut-out for the stock GM antenna.
[ William  May 25, 2019 ]
A
Don't remember, if your car has a retractable antenna this would most likely fit, it comes with adapters to fit holes and match the contours of the cars body panels, for my application It fit a 1994 Honda Accord perfectly
[ James  May 25, 2019 ]
A
The antenna is under 1".
[ Cliff  May 24, 2019 ]
Q
Will this antenna fit a 1965 ford Thunderbird?
[ mark  Apr 30, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
I installed it on a 1969 Mercury Marquis and it was fine, but the trunks on that generation of Thunderbird are pretty shallow. Take some measurements and compare to the antenna. If it's too tight, a compact version of this unit is available.
[ STUART  Jan 08, 2020 ]
A
Sorry, but I don't know. I brought the antenna for my 1983 Ford T-Bird, but I haven't installed it yet. Good Luck, JIM

Q
What are the overall dimensions if this antenna unit?
[ Rich  Oct 07, 2016 ]
2 answers

I already installed mine so I can't give you exact dimensions other than you need 12 inched below the top mounting point for installation. You might find more info at the manufacture's website; Retrosound Good luck
[ christopher  Oct 08, 2016 ]

I am sorry but the car and antenna are at a restoration shop so I have no way to get to it for measuring. Sorry that I am of no help to you.
