Hey everyone, Im curious as to how everyone has their car antenna hooked into the pi. I tried hooking mine into a y splitter with the other lead going to my after market amp, and did not have success getting the radio signal.

So I can solder the antenna cable directly to that spot. Is that what I'm seeing?

In my case it has done its job. I conntected an old female antenna connector (with shield to GND on module) to the pin to make it posible to use the car antenna plug to direct connect to fm module.
