I was surprised to lose almost all stations as I am on the 9th floor. So I started “sniffing” for signals elsewhere. I found 2 sweet spots about a foot to the right of the window about 5 feet from the floor and even better, one 1 foot off the floor. I pointed theTerk indoor antenna at the drywall and was able to get all my stations back. Our building is all brick on the outside, yet the antenna could see through the drywall insulation and brick.
If your stations are poor in numbers and or reception,try different areas and extend the indoor cable length so you may find more stations.

yes, low E rated windows can have more attenuation than reinforced concrete walls (eg with rebar).

On the plus side, the window could act as a reflector if the antenna is placed a few inches in front of it.
