I also have three of them, two are installed in mobiles. One thing about them is that they like to have 
a good voltage supply or else power output drops remarkably. With my ignition turned off, and just 
getting 12.8 volts from the battery, I only get 50 % power output. But when I start the vehicle
and the alternator supplies 14.2 volts to the battery, my output jumps up to 100 %

Only way to fix this, if you are worried about the loss of 3 db when parked, is to install one of the voltage 
boosters that MFJ and others sell. It maintains a steady 14 volts output when the supply from the battery 
is less than this.
