Sirius Antenna Mount Question

Hey everyone, thanks to all the awesome threads on here I was able to get my OEM Satellite Radio tuner installed and working successfully.

Following several threads, I decided to mount the antenna in the little outcove area that sits between the trunk opening and the rear windshield on the drivers side. I figured that way it is a stealth installation and no one can see it unless I have the trunk open. It works okay there, but it cuts out fairly regularly if I drive under a tree. I am completely unwilling to mount it on the paint because it scratches quite a bit in my previous experiences.

The antenna has a sticky bottom on it, so I'm wondering if there is any down side to mounting it on the outside of the rear window, on the lower left corner in the black area? I figure this way it is out of my line of sight, and relatively inconspicuous since the antenna is black too.
