Three types of car antennas, do you know their advantages and disadvantages?
Car antennas are one of the important functional accessories of cars. With the development of car technology, car antennas have evolved into three types in response to consumer demand: whip antennas, shark fin antennas and built-in antennas. Due to the different shapes, the functions of these three types of antennas are different from word of mouth. The following is a brief introduction to their respective advantages and disadvantages.
On some older models that are older, or those that focus on off-road vehicles, a whip antenna is generally installed on the roof. As the name suggests, a whip antenna is an antenna pointing toward the sky. The antenna is thick to thin from the base to the top. When driving, the antenna will swing like a whip in the wind. Because the whip antenna is very long, it has a strong signal collection capability. In some remote places, there is no need to worry about the situation of no signal. Length is both the advantage and disadvantage of the whip antenna. The antenna is too long, which not only increases the wind resistance of the car during driving, but also may break the antenna when passing through a tunnel or low area.
As the signal coverage becomes wider and wider, the advantages of the whip antenna gradually weaken, and the disadvantages begin to strengthen. In order to make up for the defects, the whip antenna is optimized into a retractable style, which greatly shortens the length of the antenna and reduces the influence of wind resistance. Despite this, this short and thick whip antenna still affects the overall aesthetics of the model to a certain extent, and is rejected by car enthusiasts.
