I have a Land Rover Discovery which had a dodgy standard radio aerial. I replaced it with a Halfords rubber mast aerial which is not picking up good AM/FM radio.

So I bought a Thunderpole Orbitor CB radio antenna thinking it would screw straight into the Halfords aerial base and give me superb AM/FM reception but, of course, it doesn't!

Is there an adaptor available which will allow me to attach my Thunderpole Orbitor to my Halfords aerial base?

Is it easy to change the base without running a completely new aerial cable through the car? i.e. Could I attach a base to take the Thunderpole Orbitor to the existing cabling?

you have to change the cable end to a dv plug as it needs soldering on it will be easier to change the whole cable
