Welcome to the forum Xtreme,

The antenna is in the front windshield. You have to look close in the right light to see it. The cable for it is up in the center dash, and if your car has not been altered, it should be zip tied to the radio mounting bracket. If you remove the head unit, you should be able to see it.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

I had terrible radio reception in my (RHD) 360 spider. I followed the co-axial lead from the head unit to the antenna amplifier which was buried deep in the dash behind the steering wheel. I was hoping that the power to the amplier had been disconnected but it wasn't.

It was only when I had a new windscreen put in that I found out that the actual antenna wasn't connected. I don't think it could have been sorted with the windscreen in place.

As Aldous correctly points out, the aerial amp is under the dash and a pain to get to check the connections and continuity between the radio connection and the amp, I've seen many that have broken either at the connector ends or just after the joint.
Also check the 12volt switched feed from the radio to the aerial amp and the earthing of the amp
