Default Placement of the antenna question.

Currently I have my antenna mounted on one of those window mounts and i was thinking about possibly running the antenna wire around my car this weekend to install my antenna outside the car most likely in the back. Will I notice a big difference in reception? Normally I do not have bad reception here in New York but on cloudy days and under trees I get delays and or I lose the station completely.

There's no question that the best place to mount the antenna is on the roof. It will give you a better all around signal, but you won't be able to tell HOW much until you actually do it.

Rain and clouds shouldn't effect the signal at all.. Trees and leaves will. Even a roof mounted antenna might have trouble with dense leaves.

I think I am going to go ahead and do it this weekend, it's a three day weekend after all.
