Product Research

Features

Design: The WPA1 is a window mount amplified antenna that can be used in applications where a conventional telescoping or fixed mast antenna is not desired. To improve reception, it's designed with separate amplifiers for the AM and FM bands. There are self-adhesive pads on the back of the antenna to mount it to the interior of a window in your vehicle. The antenna requires a +12 volt DC power source and should be grounded to reduce any potential noise. A red LED confirms that the antenna is on.

6 questions already asked

Q
How long is antenna cable, diameter of plug in ? How long is power source wire, where should it be connected on 94 Geo ?
[ Sam  Oct 03, 2021 ]

A
The power cable and the antenna lead on this antenna is 7'3" long. It is a duplex wire so one lead is the power and one lead is for the antenna. The ground wire is only 6 inches long and it has an eye terminal on the end. If you needed it to be longer you could cut that off and solder a longer extension on there for your ground connection.

Q
application is a 1969 Lotus Europa, a rear engine, fiberglass car. I do not want a hole in the body. I intend to mount the antenna horizontally in the front trunk. How well will it work?

I mounted my antenna in the roof of a 1941 Willys pick up truck with a fiberglass cab. It seems to work just fine no problems. Keep in mind that this is a powered antenna so you will need to run a 12 V supply and a ground wire. I have no complaints. It works fine.

Should I mounted mine on windshield using Trim around post to hide it. Just kept everything inside vehicle so as not to drill through body
[ S  Jul 24, 2021 ]

It did not work for me. I disconnected it and replaced it with an antenna mounted to fender on car and my radio now receives many channels. The antenna you are asking about was a waste of money.

Q
Im planning on installing a radio 12 volt in my 36 Chev pickup I don't want to drill a hole to mount antenna for fear of chipping new paint job. can I mount antenna on windshield?

Yes if fits nice and snug from the inside. You run it up flush to windshield. It has adhesive that holds really good.
[ JOSE C  Jul 03, 2020 ]

Yes you can mount the Antenna. I mounted the antenna above the rearview mirror mount. This position gets good reception and allows the service wires to be tucked inside the windshield molding. I had to solder extension wire for the ground wire (make sure it's well insulated). get down below the dash level and radio mount.
