Default is home dock waterproof?

got the home kit yesterday, had an extra car antenna. Used the car antenna--threw it on my roof.

is the home dock waterproof like the car dock??--if so--which one is better reception wise?

thanks!

I am guessing you mean, is the home antenna waterproof, not the dock. Anyway, from what I have read here, I believe they are both water proof since they have to be outside to work well. I think the car antenna recieves reception from a broader range of angles, while the house one is more focussed. This would make sense since you can set up the house one and leave it in the same place forever (unless you have a mobile home ). The car one is always changing its location, thus needing a more broad reception range.
I don't have the car one to try, but I have gotten awesome reception from the home antenna and dock

They are listed as indoor/outdoor. My antenna has been mounted outside for a year without any issues.

You might have to wrap the antenna with some barb wire. Not sure what it'll do to the reception though.
