Has anyone just clipped the long antenna instead of spending $35.00 on a short antenna. Wondering if it still works.

Nope but you can get the same shorty at Auto-Zone, etc for $10-12 bucks.

The wire length in a radio antenna is tuned to a specific length ether full, half, or one quarter wavelength for FM this should be around 28" so just shortening the antenna should have some impact on its reception I would recommend just getting a shorter antenna even though the antenna is shorter the wire in it should be one quarter wavelength long.

I know the one from AutoZone doesn't work. It's not made to handle the weather band. Worked for the radio but I lost my weather band ability so had to swap back. I use my weather band often.
