Default outdoor antenna

how long will my stock sirius sportster boom box antenna last outside? not sure where i'll mount it yet though. is there a adapter to convert a car antenna's plug to plug into my boom box. currently it sits behind some class block windows. it gets reception most of the time, but it does loose signal sometimes, so i have decided to get it outside, but not sure how long it will take my western (read buffalo ny) new york weather. i realy don't want to drop $45+ on a real outdoor antenna.

any help greatly appreciated.

The antenna included with the boombox is identical to the antenna included with the home kit, which is designed for either indoor or outdoor use.

Go ahead and put it outside. Put your spare change in a jar. If your antenna fails in a year or two, you might have enough to buy an outdoor antenna.
