    i was reading the case modding thread and I was looking treo that had the antena cu flush to the case. I was wondering what is under the antenna top. If I cut the antena down would I hit anything. I was wondering about it because I was going to shorten it when I sanded and painted my treo.

    Well, it might be considered just a tad pricey ($30 without the screwdriver), but you can get a short antenna from http://www.treoantenna.com/shop/.

    The colors are not true in this picture, but it gives you a pretty good idea of the size. Personal experince say the black is really, really black.

    I got one for Christmas and like it.

    What you see of the antenna is a thin cap which slips over a similarly shaped solid structure. Between the two is sandwiched a thin flexible antenna element. You could not simply cut of the end of the antenna.

    I also have the short antenna from Treoantenna.com (avatar) and thoroughly recommend it.

    wow, this is great! I hate the protrusion, it gets stuck in my pocket etc. This could be the best $30 I will spend on my Treo. Are there any ramificiations on reception. Is this the same antenna in a different package?

    I've heard that polar bear steaks are tough, but maybe if you marinated them in beer they'd turn out all right.
