[aprssig] sunroof antenna?

Drifting slightly OT and FYI.  Using a commercial RF Survey meter (HOLADAY HI-3001 Electric field probe) My 1992 camry with NO sun roof had MORE RF in the passenger compartment than my 1993 Camry WITH a sun roof.  This was with a mag mount ON THE ROOF.
  5/8 mag on the trunk was lower inside than 1/4 wave mag on the trunk.
  Don't remember the relation of trunk vs. roof mounting.  I think... 1/4 trunk was the worst of all inside.
  Go fugure...

Thanks for the replies to my query. The vehicle is a '94 Honda Accord and probably does have a film prohibiting use of an antenna. I am checking further, 73 de Rod,VE1BSK

Has anyone had any experience with fastening a thru-glass capacitive antenna to a sunroof, i.e., a horizontal versus vertical mounting of such an antenna. It seems to me that it should be workable if the fastening can withstand the effectsw of weather and direct wind effectg. Thanks for any comments on this idea, 73 de Rod,VE1BSK.
