Hi Everyone, First off, want to thank Ron for his review of XM and Sirius as well as everyone else who posted comments. I have been trying to decide for a while which service to go with. Thought the extra $3 for no commercials for Sirius was tempting -- decided to seal the deal after hearing of Sirius' arrangement with the NFL. The wife got me the home/car pack for Christmas. One thing I can say I don't like is how large the receiver/cradle is. I don't think my Saab is well suited for convenient mounting -- the only place that struck me was atop the dashboard, which seems that it could pose line of sight problems. Probably will put in a new head unit. ANYHOW, went ahead and installed the home kit. Reception is not good in the house -- not Sirius' fault, need North/West windows, we've got, you've guessed it, South/East exposure. Add in some overhangs on the building, and I get intermittent signal if any at all. I think I'll mount the antenna outside -- Sirius says it's built to stand the weather. Anyone with any experience in this? I'm sure if it fails after a while it's only a twenty (?) dollar purchase for a new antenna, but am wondering just how weather resistant these really are. Thanks for the help! Ron.
