So I installed a roof rack a while back and ever since then, my satellite reception has been really spotty and frustrating. I finally tracked down the replacement I need and I have it in hand. I'm just wondering where the best place to mount the thing would be.
I know that the general spot is under the padding on the roll bar behind the passenger seat, and that is where my current antenna is, so that's no good. From what I've gathered, the antenna is not waterproof, so mounting it outside in inadvisable. I was thinking of mounting it on my hood, but I don't want to have to buy another one in a few months due to damage from the elements.
I would like to mount it on top of my rack. but again, the waterproofing is an issue. So, does anyone have experience with where to mount the sirius antenna when you have a roof rack? Or, has anyone successfully mounted an antenna in reach of the elements, or waterproofed one?
Thanks for the help.
