Just installed a retro radio in my 81 Vette and even though I turn the radio off when I turn off car, when I start up again radio comes on and pwr antenna rises.
Its annoying but managable however I am concerned about the extra load on battery at start up.
Anyone have any ideas?

Sounds as if the radio has a bad switch. Even if the radio has the 12+ and switched wired crossed, it will not cause a radio in the off position to turn on. It would be a reason for the radio not to retain any memory (clock and settings)

I think RayDawg is right. If the stereo was on the switched lead, it should lose its time and presets. Do you lose those each time, or does it save your time and presets?
