OK newbie question here. Got an HT, and don't get reception from local repeater in my office. It has a metal roof. The repeater is several miles away, and I get hit it with the antenna in my car and the replacement whip antenna that I used to replace the rubber ducky. Normal not getting anything inside the building?
My office feels like a Faraday cage. Its hard to even listen to FM broadcast in my office... And I was there when we designed the building we're in, and there wasn't anything special done to make it block RF.
