FM antenna plug in behind radio?

I'm trying to install the module for the AM/FM Antenna and CB so I don't have to run 2 antenna. Where is the plug in for it?

Looks like you'll need an adapter. They make them for adapting the factory antenna wire to aftermarket radios, but I never seen them for aftermarket antenna to a factory radio before.

Not sure if there is an adapter available to go from the newer style AM/FM antenna connections to a PL259. If there are; I doubt the factory radio antenna will provide much of a transmit/receive signal. The problem is that the factory antenna is tuned for radio frequencies and not for the CB operating frequencies of 26.965-27.405.
You will need to purchase a separate antenna to use with the CB and have it tuned for optimum SWR.
