    I don’t see how that would be more efficient than one mounted higher.

    Under the car is probably the worst place to put an antenna. Not only would it be shielded on the top by the car, but also on the bottom by dirt.

    This was the standard antenna for the 39 Buick and ? others.
    Does anyone know how well they functioned?
