Antenna

Post by IllMatic » Mon May 29, 2006 7:38 pm

Did Kitt ever have an Antenna? Ive nvr noticed. I was thinking of buying one of these short stubby antennas. Are they just as good at picking up radio signels just like an avarage antenna?

well believe it or not kitt had an antenna in the pilot ,but soon after it was removed and the fender was bondo'd over the hole and there is an antenna you can buy from any automotive store that is concealable or even a windshield antenna that sticks along the side that is like a thin wire ,I use a magnetic one myself that is placed under the interior paneling!

but those short stubb antennas?...thats just something some crackhead will breakoff your car for $hits and giggles!....I have heard of many cars that were vandilized and the first thing to go was the antenna!

I'm sure that KITT would need an antenna so that communications can flow.

K.I.T.T. did have a antenna ,but it was called a signal transponder that was located under the hhod in the blueprints!....it may have been welded to the body of the hood?...
