    I found out one day that, You can attach the SIRIUS Home PNP Antenna to window with the SIRIUS One's Suction Cups.

    You'll Need Four of them, but it will hold the Antenna on the glass quite tightly. The reasons to do this are many, if you need your antenna to stick to glass here's how:

    1. Take a standard SIRIUS Home PNP Antenna
    2. Take (4) SIRIUS One Suction Cups and slide them into the grooves on the bottom of the PNP Antenna.
    3. And BAM instant Home Antenna Hanger


    Here's a couple pics of what it looks like:

    Josh (Mopar86) has been doing some experimenting with the Antennas. The funny thing is though we get such great reception at the TSS-Radio building we can take a Stiletto and get reception within two sets of walls in the middle of the 6000 sq foot warehouse.

    You have got to be kidding me. This is a great idea! Now if only you could do the same with the SL100 headphones. That way I wouldn't have to pin them between the window and the blind.

    maybe a suction cup with a hook on it, from like Ace Hardware or Home Depot would work to hold the ant headphones

    Wow that is a great idea... this is why I love forums. No matter how long you've been around, you can always find and/or get new info.

    Thanks... :)

    That looks fantastic and extremely handy. My apartment setup could use that for sure! Now only if I had 4 sirius one suction cups lol.

    Great work bro.

    I'll send you some. You do a great job helping the posters in the www.btls.com forum in the Tom Taylor SIRIUS section that it's the least I could do. Just PM me you address.

    What about the exposure to rain, etc.? I didn't think they were for both inside/outside use.

    they are indoor/outdoor antennas(not that i would use them outside given the other outdoor antenna options) but you can use them outside.

    This solution isnt the best for a permanent install, the suction cups will, after some time, lose their hold and fall off. its more of a temp or semi-permanent solution.

    I've had that antenna mounted to the side of my house near the roof line for three years. No problems.
