    Hello,

    I just bought myslef 2002 V70 with 603 radio unit. Now, I walked around
    the car to see where the antenna is but couldn't find it. Is it built-in
    somewhere? The radio signal is not strongest where I live and maybe having
    additional antenna would help radio quality...

    BRs,
    Zuilk

    Built in the rear left window. (on 850's anyway)

    Mine has a very good reception. You might want to check that the threads
    in the window is fine, and the connection to the radio is fine.

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,

    The new V70 also has an antenna built into the rear left side window - like
    the old V70 and the 850 before it. Apparently, the new V70 has an additional
    antenna hidden in the rear bumper.

    Apparently, the new V70 has an additional
    | antenna hidden in the rear bumper.

    I have heard that this is called a "diversity" antenna, and needs an
    optional amplifier to make it work. Perhaps someone here has more
    info?

    Cheers,

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,

    AIUI, there should already be one. On the S80, it somewhere in the vicinity
    of the rear right hand light cluster. Not sure where it is on the V70 -
    maybe in the right hand D-post? [The amplifier for the window antenna is
    apparently in the left hand D-post].

    All aerials of this type are fitted in conjunction with an amplifier.

    Cheers, Peter.
