cpcohen is on a distinguished road
Both XM and Sirius free-standing receivers will transmit (at very low power) on the FM broadcast band. _Any_ FM radio will receive that signal. You don't need a "Sirius-ready" or "XM-ready" broadcast radio.

We got a Sirius "Roady" at Radio Shack for about $50 -- runs off 12v, works very well (all over the continental US and Canada -- not so good in Central America).
