Replaced Shark Fin With Bee Sting?

Has anyone replaced the shark fin with a bee sting type aerial?

I'm thinking of doing this on my 2012. I want a decent DAB aerial. This seems to be one option. And probably cheaper than buying a new DAB shark fin off Honda.

I don't know if it would be possible:-
I can't remember which thread it was now, but I remember seeing recently the insides of the fin; it hides a variety of PCB's and other doodads, in addition to the aerial.

I'll update with the thread when I find it

Inside the aerial there will be a amplifier for the FM band radio.
