Anyone ever have a problem with stolen shorty antenna?

I was wondering for those that bought a nice shorty antenna, have any of you had a problem with someone just twisting it off and taking it? Especially one of those nice anodized aluminum ones? Ive been wondering about this and if it would even stay on the car if i bought one.

Yeah, actually, that's how I make a living.

I sell shorty antenna to someone, then at night while the customer sleeps I jack the antenna back and sell it to him again the very next day.

Honestly though I doubt anyone would go to the trouble unless you live in the inner city or something.

If you are worried, just take it off when you are in a bad area. Simple solution.
