Thought I saw a Charger with no low band antenna. Getting off low band?

They like to clip them down to the A Pillar driver's side. Makes it low profile. There's a notch in the pillar. However looking back I may not have been looking at a Charger, since those antennas are center cab mounted I thought? This one had a ball mount on the rear driver's side if I recall, possibly a Camaro but I thought those were flushed through the fleet.

Here in Sacramento, the cars assigned to the Capitol Protection Section almost always have their antennas clipped, as @norcalscan mentioned. They can still transmit on the low-band when they help the freeway units.

There has been a lengthy thread on this going on for several weeks. Suggest you search for it.

The short answer is "NO" not a chance. No digital either on low band.

Some of the chargers have a "low profile" antenna on the right rear quarter panel that looks like an OE-style antenna. It's not that noticeable unless you're looking for it, one of the head honchos out of the Santa Maria office runs a dark blue unmarked Charger.

Once you see it, you'll recognize that it's a bit larger than normal.

I had a friend tell me normal Chargers have in-window AM/FM antennas and small siriusXM/gps fin, so any external antenna on a Charger should "mark" any unmarked.
