Satellite radio question

Does anyone know if i can have it attached to the windshield inside the car instead of having it on the trunk or the roof? i see everyone here basically installed it on the outside of the car, but can you not just tape it to the inside windshield of the car?

Thanks

In a sense you would be moubting it upside down. If it worked (I dont think it would), you would have a lot of dead spots where you would lose signal. Most of the antennas now are pretty small, and no one can see them when you blast by them at 120 mph anyways

I put mine on the trunk lid next to the window in the middle, it looks ok there.

I've seen them inside the car, but not upside down.

What i meant to say is most antennas are made to be mounted on the trunk, etc. I was thinking if you mounted one of those on the window, on the inside, it would be upside down. Thats what I get for posting too early in the morning...
