I gave up on FM TeraRadio last year & got Sirius when our only Oldies Station in Orlando (103.1 FM)fliped to Cuban music format in the middle of the day-one min 50's-60's music; I get back into the car & its now cuban music. I must thank that station for making up my mind to get the Sirius Starmate, to all the other stations in the area-you lost an advertising customer in your market area. As a side note; I just drove from Pensacola, FL to Orlando; 1/2 the trip was in a sevier rain storm on I-10 & Sirius never lost the sat. feed- I was impressed, my magnetic antenna is mounted on the hood of the car to keep receiver portable.

I have a Roady II in my ford pickup that uses a built in fm tanssever in it so I then tune to a rarly used fm frequicy and it then comes through the factory system Whell I purchased a home kit for it on E-bay for a lot less than they go for retail and it was brand new These kits included a table top mount,antenna,remote control and wall plugin adapter I pain 12.00 for mine they usualy run about 45.00 Well once you are hooked up then you tune any fm radio in to the frequency you picked and there it is you can then pick and choose what you want to listen to and change channels with the remote and sit back and enjoy

I have had XM for 2 years and love it. I got a extra one this year and take it to work with me in Mexico, They said it wouldn't work down here but it does. Now I can keep up with my NASCAR all the time. Also to the question about an extra intena for the one in the camper? Try pulling your truck up real close to the camper then tune your radio to the XM receiver.It workes that way to.

They said it wouldn't work in Mexico? ...hummmm! I wonder who THEY are. The satellites for XM are actually in the southern hemisphere, meaning the signals would be better in Mexico than in the northern parts of the USA. XM signals will drop out in Canada near the Yukon Territory with no signal at all in Alaska. Sirius Radio's satellites are almost directly over the USA and with a proper antenna, can be heard in many parts of Alaska. Again, XM Radio will work its best in Mexico.

I've had XM since 9/11/2002, exactly one year after their planned launch. The launch was pushed back one month because of -- you guessed it 9/11.

I'm not the biggest sports fan, and I rarely listened to any sports on it, but I do listen to Christian Talk #170 and I enjoy the easy listening music of Sunny, and XM Pop's (classical) along with Jazz. I do like the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and most of the 80's channels and Nashville along with Hanks Place.

No commercials. Ya gotta love it.

I also like the old time radio shows on 164. Burns & Allen, Gunsmoke, the Shadow, the Green Hornet etc.

Don't take my XM away.
