    Angry Poor wind reception in Condo

    Hi all,
    I recently moved to a condo on the 30th floor and even though I have floor to glass ceilings everywhere and an I get little to no reception at all (I live in downtown Toronto).

    What are some possible fixes to this? Given that it is a condo I might not be able to use some of the boosters (I tried one that required 10m distance from external antenna to internal antenna, which resulted in good incoming signal however poor outgoing signal).

    I have the Cel-Fi RS2 for Wind. Got it second hand, new is really expensive.

    I work in a condo at the Desk, and let me tell you, even on the main floor, it's 3 bars out of 4. (-85 to -110 dBm). My girlfriend says 3 bras out of 4. On the tower side, on all the floors and in the stairwells, I get full reception. (anywhere from -59 to -85 dBm). On the Podium side, except on the 3rd floor, zero. P2 parking, I get a signal in a small stretch of space. Parking garage forget it. Drops to Emergency. But then again this condo only has 16 floors.

    You may have lots of glass, but if the glass has a Low E coating to improve energy efficiency, it also has Low E coating to reduce radio signal transparency. (One comes with the other.)
