        I have used the Radioshack window mount wire on a motorcycle.  For
my needs, it is super, but it doesn't pull in anything but fairly close,
powerful signals.  That may be a function of the rather tight mounting
space available to me though.  If you live out in the boondocks, it may not 
suffice.  In town, it's ample.

        "At dawn we will face the greatest test of our resolve.  But I 
say this: though starving, hunger will not weaken us; though diseased, 
illness will not cripple us, and though weary, exhaustion will not claim 
us.  We can fight knowing that all true Reiklanders will forevermore 
honour our valiant gesture of defiance, even though our bodies be left to 
feed the beasts of carrion.

        Mind you...we could always surrender."  -Rick Priestly's Siege
