Radio reception

Any thoughts on getting better reception while out and about.
Thanks
Mike

Satellite radio. Most free over the air broadcasting is subject to power, distance from the transmitter geographic conditions. Camping a lot of times is effected by at least one of those conditions. Our solution is paid satellite radio. Anywhere in the country we get the exact same music.

Satellite radio. I've had it for 7 yrs. XM. Had it on my MC with integrated intercom set up for the wife and I. I was leery at 1st but after having it for a couple months and not having to listen to commercials and having a huge variety of music at hand it was a no brainer to get it in the vehicles. I have it in my current truck (factory), I have a car docking station in my wife's car and also a docking station in the 5th wheel. Never leave home without it. I have a Roady XM tuner that we just transfer form home, to the wife's car or the 5'er. As long as you're on the right side of a mtn or not under a thick bunch of trees you can get reception all the time. And if you do lose it it's only for a few seconds at most. I have a permanent mounted antennae on top of the 5'er and another antennae that I can splice into if I need to move it away from some tree's at the CG.
Well worth the $14-15.00 a month IMO.

I wrap my head in tin foil and the music is still too loud ...

Seriously though ... what receiver are you using when out and about? Are we talkin' car, RV, handheld ? Receiver sensitivity comes with a price.

This might help you find stations before you leave for your destination. It also tells you the strength of the stations signal. Good luck.
