[EDIT: Grill has been snipped, and recevier moved forward. Bel may still need tune-up, but at least I know the mount isn't the issue now.]
Have concerns about range on new STi-R.
PIC BELOW...mounted receiver directly against the inside of the grill, 4"right of center, marked STi-R.
You can see the grill is wide mesh and has a lot of space so Sti-r should have a decent "view" of the road.
At best, getting 1/2 mile KA reception. My windshield mount STi I just sold was getting over 1 mile.
Is this a mounting issue or is the Bel receiver failing me? Thoughts?
(Note: I did have a windshield STI a year ago that had reception problems, until I sent it in for a tune-up and then it's range extended twice over. So I know the units sometimes have issues.)
