Tried it - issue persists.

In the meantime I have made some progress: putting the
base unit (MRF-300) in an old sheet metal box, sandwiched
between 2 aluminum drip pans from my Weber grill seems
to provide enough shielding..... I only hope that this
can't be the only solution. WAF is kind of low..... I
am surprised that the MRF-300 seems to be so sensitive
against electromagnetic (?) fields, which seem to cause
this issue. The RFX-150 at the same spot is doing fine
(does not glim).... That does not sound right... Am I
missing anything?

That sounds about right for the URC...the pans. Cover them up with a few plants to get the WAF your looking for, I have had many similar issues as you installing URC we would get 1 room 100% but then move to the next room to only get at best 50% response. spend several hours to several days trying to correct the issues to only get another 25-30% better, we have found that changing the RFX150 to a RFX250 antenna has helped in most cases
also make sure your front blaster is off
I can get 7 RG6 cables and 5 Cat 5e wires in a 1" hole and I saved a ton of $$$ by switching to GEICO
