Mine is indoors.  It mostly works but fades out occasionally.

It works a lot better up high.  I haven't moved it around much
to find the best location.

Looks like about 5% of the samples are bad.  I think rain/clouds
interfere but I don't have any data to back that up.  (I think
I have the raw data.  Might be fun to graph it and see if it
correlates with the weather.)
