Still, after looking at it, I discovered that the bolt on the base is actually broken, and that I'm going to need a new base.
Thanks for this writeup.
LMAO. same exact thing happened to me... broke it brushing snow off... i thought it was just the screw but upon closer inspection discovered its a one piece unit...this was like 2 years ago... and i thought it looked better from far away, but kinda ghetto when u realize its broke! have been antennaless for years now.

are there any shark fin style antennas that fit? ive scoured the earth... only found "fake" antennas, as in they get no reception, just a plastic piece. im finalyy deciding to actually get a new base and fix it. its more of an eyesore now.
