Default Office Problems

I have just recently moved jobs and actually sit at a desk all day so I decided to bring in my satellite radio one day and found that I could pick up a signal. I live near Atlanta, Georgia so there are many ground repeaters and that is the signal I pick up. 100 percent from ground repeaters. This is where my question comes in. Once I find a signal shouldn't I be able to leave the antenna in one spot and not move it around. What causes drop signals from a ground repeater? Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. If not I will just keep moving it to find the signal so I can have my Howard in the morning and Bubba in the afternoon.

I get reception at my desk (via repeaters) as well but occasionally I do have drop outs. Not sure why but I don't really worry because it's only for a second or so every once in a while. For the most part, I get constant signal and don't have to move anything anywhere.

That would be great if it only dropped out for a few seconds. I am talking about it will work for a solid 20 mins and then will start cutting in and out and then go blank until I move it around again.

It depends on your location in relation to movement of the satellites. I don't know the specifics either, but it has been explained at length on this board if you do a search. Some people are not be able to get signal indoors at certain times of day; others just experience dropouts.
