Default Signal problems on Long Island

Does anyone else have problems getting a good signal on Long Island? Does anyone get a signal at all inside their house?

I don't get any reception in my house I have antenna mounted on the roof of my house and I always get signal. When i am driving in my car I rarley get a signal drop. My antenna is not even pointed straight up on my car right above my windshield so it has a slight tilt to it. My girlfriends Sirius antenna is mounted the right way on the back of the car and she never ever loses signal.

I never have any problems on Long Island, as long as my stiletto is docked in the car. In "Live Portable" mode with the antenna headphones the signal drops every once and a while, but it still works pretty well. As for in my house I can't get any reception unless it is docked (I currently do not have a stiletto home dock), I use the wi-fi at home for Howard Stern, and Dish Network for Sirius Music.

i never have problems outside. inside i do not get sat reception at all. i had a home kit with my last receiver and that worked perfectly with the antenna mounted on the roof.
