    My new shape ducato has a stick on windscreen radio aerial for the cab radio that's total "PANTS"
    my van has a overhead bed so what type do other other funsters have and recommend.
    was thinking of a rubber duck style aerial to mount on the wing.:RollEyes:

    hi mulaz,

    they are popular and do work very well.

    make sure the inside of the wing is very clean with no paint where the nut and washer touch it.

    brush a bit of oil/grease on where you cleaned the wing after fitting the aerial.

    I fitted a rubber ducky jobbie to the roof rack, it was a pain running the lead all through the van but the radio reception is miles better now. I was lucky in as much I already had a water tight roof entry box for the salelite cable..
