Default Acquiring signal.

Ok so I am a little more than frustrated...

My car antenna can receive a signal from just on of my car in my apartment complex but my home antenna has to be positioned North or Northwest to get any signal at all.. and frankly, I am not getting one. There are some trees in the way and I cannot get it positioned perfectly North... so apparently I am screwed till I move out of this apartment.

I have a similar problem which forced me to get cable as my apartment faces freaking east so No DTV.

My solution for Sirius is using a car antenna hot melt glued to a closet pole I got at home depot and attached to the edge of my balcony. Looks ghetto but works.

Oddly I was about to create a thread because from 9:45-10:15 for the last three days I have lost signal using this set up.
