Default boombox at workplace

I currently have a Sportster 4 in my car and i was wanting to get a boombox at work. I'm sure this has been asked before, but how how good is the signal inside a building? Does the attenna need to be close a window or does that not matter? I really want one becuase the coworker next to me plays horrible music all day long!! Thanks in advance!

In order to get good reception inside a building you need to have a ground repeater nearby. If you do NOT have a ground repeater you may have a tough time getting a signal. Your best bet without a ground repeater is getting the antenna outside. If thats not possible you can try a window sill. You need to try and aim for the middle of the US / Canadian border .
