Default Stilletto external antenna

So I got a Stilletto for Christmas...

For some reason, I get real crappy reception where I live (Southwest Riverside County, Southern California). Of course, reception is improved with the headset antenna, but who wants to wear that clunky thing???

Are there 3rd Party external antenna's available for the Stilletto? I plan to use this backpacking and I can easily velcro an antenna (like the little bulb that goes in the cars) to the top of my pack.

I Know- I can use the headset AND the ear buds at the same time.

I'm an Ultralight Backpacker. I want to shave off as much weight as I can.

Wierd, cuz reception is kick-ass on the coast! I get SWEET reception inside my office building in Newport Beach!

No aftermarket antennas yet. Me-rubin and I created a guide for modifying the antenna-phones. See
