Just get a vehicle(and home dock too IMHO) dock from EBay, or find one on craigslist near you.
They typically sell for around $25-$30(fair price is $20-$25/each IMHO. Don't go any higher) on EBay.
So spend a few bucks more, get an antenna with the car dock, place it on the roof of your car, and don't worry about anything anymore.
Go cheap, and you are going to run into trouble/problems. The difference in cost between what you suggest and what you really want is between $10-$15.
Trust me. It is worth the extra dough.
