Default Alternatives to FM Antenna (Dodge Caravan)?

I'm hard-wiring a non-OEM Sirius system into my '05 Dodge Caravan. The antenna and the power source are installed. However, the FM Antenna is allows static through the radio. Are their alternatives, like some sort of wire to plug it directly into the radio antenna wire?

The radio is the RB1 with built in Sirius compatibility with the Chrysler-supplied tuner, which isn't the route that I'm taking.

to Sirius Backstage

They make an adapter that connects the FM-out on your Sirius unit directly to your car's FM radio antenna input...

It's called an FM direct adapter, or an FM modulator relay. One of the Sirius Backstage sponsors.. (TSS Radio) sells them.

HERE is the owner's manual that shows you how to hook it up..
