2002 Deville DTS, Bose, On-Star... aftermarket Antenna?
My car's radio reception SUCKS. I've checked all the wires, checked the windshields and connections and everythign looks good. I pulled the radio and checked reception with a length of copper wire (about 3') and got fantastic reception. Plug the stock stuff back in and it all goes back to crap.
If I buy an aftermarket antenna that can either be hidden somewhere or placed somewhere not noticable, will it cause any problems? I don't use onstar at all.
I've really had enough with not getting any stations.

There is an antenna module that switches between AM and FM antennas. Start with that first, the FM antenna is on the windshield and the AM/FM antenna is on the rear glass. The module is located above the rear glass, central to the car.
