Clear glass is not a problem for radio waves but mirrored glass, (if that is wat you have), has a metallic coating that will reflect a lot rf energy. I have heard that satellites will not work through this type of glass but maybe a call to a local independent installer would get you a more definitive answer.rimmi2002 said:Hi I live in a high rise building that is contracted out to Direct TV. They are charging me $60 for just standard cable and do not offer HD channels. I have multiple windows in my apt with a clear view of the the Southwest which is what I need from Chicago.
I was wondering if it will be possible to place a dish inside a apt that has a clear view of the sky threw a window. Will this be possible? Anyone tried this before? Any input on whether a mirror interferes with the dish signal? It will refract light...I am not sure if it will do anything to radiowave signal...which I think is what dish signal is.
Any input will be appreciated before I put in the time and money to get the neccessary equipment to make this happen. Thanks.
