I believe our antenna is on the rear window. It's reasonable to assume that there could be a break in one of the defrost wires, which could cause a problem with the antenna. Back before the days of Bluetooth radio, I remember noticing that running the rear defrost caused some induced noise in the stereo, so it may just be a drawback in the design which is amplified by the aging of the car.
Let's just pretend I didn't grow up, or your going to be terribly disappointed.
