Default No clear signal in fresno apartment..Help!

I'm in need of some help if anyone can help. I moved to an apartment in Fresno and now can no longer get reception on my boom box which houses my sportster replay. I have it in my window facing North and East and still have no such luck. Sirius customer care was no help either as I was placed on hold for 25 min! Any help as to boost my signal or any apartment tips would be great. Thanks.
we're only chasing safety

Often when you can't get a signal indoors, even though you are sure you're pointing the antenna correctly, the problem is metallic tinting on the windows, a very common problem with business places, but not unheard of at a home.

Also, pointing the antenna is not easy. It has to be done fairly precisely to get the full signal. One way to avoid that pitfall is to use a vehicle antenna. The boombox uses a straight plug, though, so you would need a vehicle antenna with the same. You should be able to find an old style antenna with a FAKRA shell that can easily be removed and should work for you. Here are instructions.
“… we meet the right sort, this-will- work. We get some, buckaroo…”
