How can I improve my Clear internet reception?

Does my building have crazy windows? I'm struggling to get decent reception for Clear Internet even though I live TWO BLOCKS from Clear WiMAX towers. I opened my balcony door a moment ago and BAM! Awesome reception. This is crazy. What's going on and what can I do?

The far wall of my loft is 8 feet wide by 9 feet high of windows. I live on the top story of a high rise right in the center of downtown Portland with a slew of Clear WiMAX towers within blocks of me. I should be getting excellent reception.
I have the Clear Hub Express modem and bought the D-Link external antenna for it. I just got this stuff yesterday and am trying it out to see if I can finally dump Comcast.
What can I do to improve my signal?
