I just put in Sirius satellite radio - yippie!!
We already had a "Sirius Ready" radio that needed another receiver hooked to it. I bought the receiver and eagerly headed to the boat to hook it up, thinking that there might be an installation snag. Within 5 minutes of going online to pay my $12.95/month for the everything package, I was listening to channel 31, the Margaritaville channel.
My wife is really looking forward to listening to it, so we are both psyched.
I still have to get a better antenna. The dashboard antenna just barely picks up the signal from inside the boat - through the headliner and deck above. Does anyone have an antenna recommendation for picking up the signal through the deck? Or should I run an antenna outside to the dinghy davits?
Does anyone have a favorite channel?
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
