Rear Window Defroster

I used my rear window defroster a few days ago and noticed that there are a couple of lines that do NOT defrost. It looked odd to me that they don't defrost all the window. I brought this to Tesla service's attention when I was there last week for a different reason and showed them these pictures. The service tech who looked at this told me that this is normal and those two lines are antenna lines. This looks very strange to me that they will leave a bid fogged up square in the middle of the rear glass like this. I want to believe them but having a hard time with it.

Can any of you please check your defrosted window and let me know if it looks similar to mine or are they just trying to feed me a bunch of bull!!

Thanks

I always have a lot of respect for someone who will say, "I don't know" rather than make up an answer. This is clearly a made-up answer. Just browsing through various people's photos on this thread reveals that different people are having different heater lines not functioning, so it's clearly not an antenna.

Yeah, that's very annoying that someone would come up with a lie like that just to get out of doing the repair.
