They still build up ice, though, and bend like crazy at speed. Not much you can do about it though.

I should do both vehicles this weekend, the Bonne and The Missus' MommyVan
Lightly oil that antenna anyway, then wipe it dry. It'll hold less moisture to freeze.
And don't put one of them WalMart cowboy antennae balls on it. Kinda makes the problem a little more noticeable....

Same lube on the antenna. Kinda liberal, then up down up down.

Then wipe it dry.
