Talking Reception in PM

Question ......... I just purchased a Sportster 4 c/w boombox. I listen mostly indoors. I place the boombox attenae outside on window ledge facing in a westerly direction as suggested (I'm in eastern Canada). I find that the reception in the evenings is far inferior than daytime. Is that normal? What factors affect signal reception, ie, 2 or 3 bars reception one moment, then dropping off to no reception? Should I purchase a roof mount attennae?

The satellites are in an elliptical movement, they always move north in North America before dropping south again. I would recommend that you just put a home antenna on the roof instead of a roofmount antenna (which would save money)
