FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T9A07)

Q) What is a good reason not to use a "rubber duck" antenna inside your car?

A) Signals can be significantly weaker than when it is outside of the vehicle

NJ2X Notes:
Using an antenna on the exterior of the vehicle will dramatically improve both reception and your transmitted signal.  Better to have all that RF outside the vehicle too.
