Default 2019 WRX vs STi Shark fin

Anyone know if there is a real difference between the 2019 WRX and STi's shark fin antenna's?

I noticed there's a difference comparing 2 side by side
Top WRX (2019 CVT eyesight), Bottom STi (2019 base, has starlink buttons but was ordered with 0 options past the push button start)


My STi has got a whistling noise coming from the antenna, which promted me to look.

My 2018 WRX Limited is the same as yours.
Maybe they changed vendor or something.
Or maybe one is with navigation and one without?

I didn't realize there were two types.

My 16 STI with Nav and HK has the top antenna.
My 19 WRX Limited with Nav and HK as the bottom antenna.

Neither make any noise.
