The fixed mount drops signal and with a quick cable swap on my home dock, presto I have Sirius again!
How are your connections with the fixed antenna mount. If they are loose or the coax ends are not making good contact that could be the issue. There are lots of points of failure on the fixed anteanna with all the connections. The folding unit is self contained with only 1 connector. A lot less to go wrong. I too would expect the fixed antenna to get a stronger signal.
