Is there any affect on performance if the AE is laid on its side?

For example, will doing this affect the antenna orientation in such a way that speed will drop? My AE is currently up high, hidden on top of a bookcase, and I'd be worried about having to stand this up and have it potentially fall off the bookcase, not to mention that it's much easier to see being so tall.

  • I don't think so. I ran into the same situation. I didn't have room for it to be placed upright like designed, but the APE doesn't have any moving parts.
