Would moving my 20-176 from the front of my window provide better reception ? I know there is metal in the window frame. Was thinking of moving it from the front of the window to a corner 3 feet away from the window. Thanks !

One test should provide the answer.
I 2nd that-time to experiment with antenna positioning.
Another thing; the 20-176 is so darn cheap I went and bought one too. I mounted it to an old torchlamp pole (I keep it around for possible indoor antennas). I was dissapointed in its performance especially on uhf, and 800 was a total wash. It did, however, do really well in the airband. My dukkie antennas smoked it if that tells you anything. If I ever get the inclination and some coax, I will try it outside where it belongs anyway, but the d130j has that job.
