On 96 RWM, I have magnetic antenna within the roof rack area, about four inches to the rear of the skylight. Perfect reception. Use the same place (within the roof rack) on the 89 Caprice, 86 Caprice and 93 Dodge Caravan. As already posted, hide and protect the tiny antenna cable inside the weatherstrips.
And here there is no terrestrial network, so only XM reception is from satellite.
Generally 70 - 80% signal strength (sat) and 0% signal strength (terr).
If you live in a more urbanized area than the arctic circle (like me), you may be able to get away with the antenna being inside the car where it can still receive the terrestrial network signal.
''know this: Unless you slam into the rocks, chances are good that you won't die immediately when you hit the water. It will hurt like all hell. Your broken body will struggle to stay afloat. Intense pain for who knows how long before you finally succumb to a horrid drowning death. Maybe you will survive after all, now with life long debilitating injuries. Are you really up for that?''
