Where is the Antenna for the radio exactly at?

Hi all,

I'm a little confused. I thought the antenna for the radio was in the sharkfin. It proved me wrong when I was listening to the radio and I had to turn on the rear window heat, and all of a sudden the radio signal was gone. Turned it off, radio station was back.

When I had a BMW in Europe, this problem never occurred. But here in the States it does. Also on my in-laws car (mazda) the antenna is integrated in the rear windshield, so it also interfere with the signal...

Seems really stupid. Please prove me if I'm wrong.

There are several (depending on configuration/options - up to 6 separate antennas) housed in the rear window, like your in-law's Madza. For example, the AM antenna is located in the upper left (driver's side) corner of the rear window and is a grid that extends from left to right, ending just to the right of the center high mount brake light.
