I keep saying that I'm going to get it... The place which I rented the last couple of winters has Dish, including the basic XM stations, the latter is about all I'll tune in. Willie's Roadhouse is about the only country station I'll listen to, plus the various classic rock stations.
When my company trucks came with XM I never found reception to be that good. Mountains, trees, sometimes snowstorms would block the signal. I've been told that the external recievers don't have that problem; any comments?
I had an external antenna on my car's Sirius radio. Never had an issue, even in the worst weather. That includes a huge snowstorm in Dallas many years ago-dumped at least 12 inches. I remember it was near Christmas and I was driving to Northern Tool near Fort Worth listening to old radio shows doing their Christmas episodes.
The only time I recall losing coverage was under a long underpass/bridge, but that's about it.
