Antenna Delete + Amplified interior antenna

To get rid of the antenna completely, I used an Metra UA-205 amplified interior antenna.  This type of antenna mounts on the top of the windshield.  A stranded ground strap must be connected to a good chassis ground.  Power from the radio is required for the antenna.  Use the grey wire on Pin2  of the J1 connector on the Shaker 500.  This provides power from the Acc and the power stays on as long as the radio is does.  Approximate cost $20

 Later, I had the antenna hole welded and painted
