Hello to all,

I'm looking to install a radio antenna under my running boards like the originals were. The previous owner fabricated a antenna by using sheet metal and isolating them with rubber grommets on the ends under the running boards and haphazardly jury rigging them somehow. My desire is support them between the running board support brackets but is that enough to get at least decent reception or is their a minimum length they need to be. Also is their a recommended wire, and way to attach it, to use or would any shielded wire suffice

Thanks for your time.
Tom H.
