Unhappy Office Signal Extreme Frustration

I had the bright idea of turning off my Internet Sub of Sirius to make use of a Sportster 5 I had not being used. Did this for 2 reasons 1.) My data usage has exploded and went from using 5 gb to 10 gb of data a month mainly because of sirius. 2) I dont want to pay for 2 subs one for my car used only when driving and one for work when I spend most of my time.

It was a great idea until I setup my radio in my office. I'm lucky to have a nice office by a window and everything but it just happens to be on the North side of the building and I know I need to direct the antenna south (Michigan). To make things worse the office windows cannot be opened so I cant use my antenna out of a window. I've tried everything pointing it every way possible and I'm lucky to get 3 bars with Ter/SAT dropping in and out. I'm at my wits end and am ready to cancel my sub an call it a loss. Before I do that I thought I'd post here and maybe someone would have some idea on what I can do. As I stated above this is the office I work at. I cannot string wires around, use the internet for streaming, etc. So I'm limited as to what I can do. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Maybe you can find a repeater.
