Option #1: Find a tow truck to bring you to a dealer that may or may not be open or within 200 miles or have the antenna in stock.
Option #2: Unplug the 'faulty' [who the hell knows if they are faulty] antenna and plug in the back-up antenna and ride home or to nearest dealer or to a dealer that has the antenna or to a motel to get out of the rain...
