I'm confused about antennas

OK...I've looked all over these forums and don't see a straight answer, so I'll ask a straight question.

I've got an '02 SLK320 and I want to put the SL antenna mast on it. I just want to know if I want the mast from an R230 or R129.

Can I just change to the stubby mast or do I need to change the actual antenna connector as well?

Help brain has fallen and it can't get up.

Thank you in advance

I have the shorty antenna and I too live ~30 miles outside of San Francisco in the North (East) Bay, Benicia and work in Berkeley with a view of SF and the Bay out my office window. The shorty picks up all my preset stations (~4AM, 7FM stattions), ONCE I am halfway to work down I-80 to Berkeley. But in Benicia I only get 1 FM and 2 FM stations. On a trip outside of close to SF, I just screw back on the stock antenna.

The shorty makes it a lot easier to put on the car cover, I don't have to line up the antenna with the car cover hole.
