Default I got 10 bars!!!!!

and that is with the antenna inside the car windshield on the dash!!!! screw putting it on the roof of the car, you don't have to, as long as the antenna has some clear view of the sky, it works great!!!!

By George I think you've got it! Putting the antenna where the satellite can see it works!

It will work there, but you'll get more frequent dropouts with it there.

There are certain times of the day i will get 10 bars both terr and sat. As the birds travel thruout the day there are other times the birds go behind some heavy foilage. at these times sat may drop down to 3 bars with a possibe complete drop from time to time. During these times the repeater (12 miles away) is there to fall back on. antenna is on the roof. this is not a car installation.
