    Hi all!
    Now that the fat lady has sung on that pissing contest,I have
    a question for you.Ijust took a temp appartment for the winter
    and l'm building a new house in the spring.The problem is that
    l am not allowed to mount a dish at this new apartment so l'm
    going to try to set up a dish 500 inside pointing out of a window
    l have a good view of a couple of birds and the window is a large
    4 pane slider.l can set it up with the window open but the
    temperature here can drop to -30c.My question is...would l be
    better of changing one of the sliders to plexiglass or some
    other plastic for a stronger signal? lhave been playing with
    free tv for 13 years but just took it on as a hobby lately.
    Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks for the help

    Keep in mind that I have never tried signal through glass, but I have read that it is possible as long as you have a straight shot at the sats. Some signal loss will happen but an in line amp should compensate if needed. Only big problem would be if the glass is reflective coated on the outside.
