What are the black things on roof of 2020 f250?
Andrew Surma of Ford Trucks communications confirmed to Ford Authority that the two “box like” items on the roof are in fact antennas, as we originally assumed. One of them contains the embedded modem, and the other is used for SiriusXM satellite radio. via
Why does Ford still have an antenna?
Pickups have an antenna, instead of the standard glass build antenna for a couple of reasons. Namely being for design, strength of signal, and ease of repair! via
What are the two black things on the roof of my F-150?
I can attest that at least one is for the satellite radio. On the generation thirteen F-150 it was the "shark fin" antenna on the roof towards the front. Good to know the other is for the internet connectivity. I like that they are both uniform instead of two separate pieces tacked onto the roof of the truck. via

Why do trucks have two antennas?
With antennas on both sides of your vehicle, you're much less likely to have large dead spots because the antenna system can "see" more. This is one of the primary reasons most 18 wheelers have dual antenna setups. Without them, the large trailer being pulled would create large dead spots. via
Can I remove car antenna?
Luckily, you can remove and repair the antenna yourself for under $20 and a quick trip to the auto parts store. The most common type of antenna is pillar-mounted, which slides easily in and out of the holder. You can unscrew and pull out the old unit. via
Why do some cars have antennas and some don t?
Once upon a time, cars were only connected to the outside world via radio. That's why most vehicles had car radio antennas. However, manufacturers are striving towards connected cars and/or connected driving, autonomous vehicles, V2X, etc. Car radio antennas obviously cannot handle all of these functions. via

Are two antennas better than one?
Adding a second antenna can increase the signal path coverage and give you a more consistent signal. To accomplish this you will need a combiner or coupler that can combine the two antennas together. I would recommend that you use two identical antennas. This will ensure a balanced signal path and coverage. via
What is a Cophase antenna?
First of all, co-phased antennas create a directional pattern that favors communications in front and in back of the vehicle. This is ideal for truckers and RV's that use their radios to speak to those on the same road/highway that they are traveling on. via
Can you run 2 UHF antennas?
It is also quick and easy access to both of your options whenever you require them and it is rather easy to install it. With this set up you can run more than 2 antennas if you really want – however if you make the right decision when purchasing you will only need 2 to cover all your requirements. via
Do short truck antennas work?
The shorter antenna will give you reception somewhere between full length and nothing. For me I listen to AM a lot and the stock antenna is too sensitive around power lines. Removing it actually improves reception in most cases (eliminates that loud AC hum) so it wasn't tough to go with a shorty. via
Can you upgrade car antenna?
With continued use, your car's factory antenna may need replacement with an aftermarket model to improve reception. Whether you want to upgrade your OEM antenna or replace a broken one, the three aftermarket car antennae below will keep you tuned in. via

How far apart should antennas be?
Antenna Positioning: Distance Between Antenna
For effective diversity performance, AB antennas should not be positioned less than ¼ wavelength apart, and ideally, they would be placed ½ to one full wavelength apart. via
Can you stack TV antennas?
Two properly stacked antennas will bring in about one-and-a-half times more signal voltage than a single antenna; a stack of four can almost double the signal voltage. Of course you can't just keep doubling the antennas indefinitely. Beyond eight, there is no appreciable increase in signal pickup. via
What is dual antenna?
A dual Wi-Fi antenna is a pair of identical antennas on a wireless router or Wi-Fi-equipped device, intended to eliminate signal fading and dead spots. via

What dBi antenna do I need?
On an open and flat highway, a high gain antenna will be better… 3 dB, 6 dB, etc. If your desired coverage area is hilly then a ¼ wave omnidirectional antenna will be better. The other type of gain is directional and is important for base stations. via

What does dB mean for UHF antennas?
Which UHF antenna and what is dB? dB or Decibel is a logarithmic unit (a scale of measurement) that indicates the ratio of a physical quantity (for scientific details see wikipedia.org ). Without too much detail every time power is doubled you add 3 dB. via
