Default HD radio antenna

94 XJ, new radio that receives in HD, digital and analog. Is there such a thing as a HD antenna ? I have is set to analog instead of auto because it always fades in and out on digital or HD.

I've never heard of an HD antenna for car radios. I think if you have a good quality radio antenna, properly installed, that's all you need.

Make sure the ground for your radio is good, and the antenna mounting hole is not rusty. It needs a good ground there, too.

Yeah, the digital stuff doesn't carry as far.
