I removed the inside part of the vent to gain access to the space in the ceiling then I fished the antenna cable through that hole and through the ceiling over the the vent in the bathroom. I was going to go out the vent and epoxy (or use silicone) the antenna to the roof just outside the vent. But then I realized the bar across the vent that holds the fan was metal and magnetic (I'm using the car antenna). So I clicked it on there and I get all 3 bars. No muss, no fuss and I didn't have to drill any holes to the outside!
Good idea! I plan on adding an exterior antenna myself. I'll have to rethink my plan and copy this idea. Thanks!

When I did mine I went down the same access hole for the roof mounted auto sat dish.. Mounted the antenna on the roof behind a vent cover.. works great and no leaks ...
