Isn't it great when your employer lets you put up an antenna??? I've got my receiver on my desk, a 50' extension going up a power pole into the drop-ceiling, across a few HVAC pipes where it attaches to the antenna, down the back wall, out the door, up the back wall and then to the antenna which has been zip-tied to a light on the back of the building for the past 3 years. Still working great and am still using the same PNP1 from then

Funny thing is that I would have sworn that the antenna cable would have eventually been crushed by the door, but it's been working perfectly for 3 years like this.

Congrats Rayndog!
I think I might have a hard time selling this if I needed to. Good thing I get good coverage when I'm in the office.

You get me to MI and I'll help. If you help with mine.


I work at a ski resort in the rental shop, right above where I work is "The pyramid" a big glass pyramid/skylight as part of the roof on our building. I connected my Stiletto to a stereo we have and placed it at the SW corner of the pyramid and I pick up 1-2 bars constantly. All said, I do realize I am not in an office. I also pick up a random WiFi signal from one of the lifts that shouldn't have internet connected to it. (long technological explanation, PM me if you want to)
