    I just bought a new Pioneer AVH-X5700BHS and a SXM300v1 tuner
    I was thinking about covering up the SXM antenna with this shark fin antenna. My truck is a silver Ford Ranger. I'm afraid the silver paint on the antenna might be too metallic for a good signal through the plastic. Has anyone tried something like this?
    Plus, this antenna is designed to be an FM antenna and does have some metal in it - it might degrade the satellite signal a bit too much but for $16 it might be worth a try.

    TSS Radio used to make (or paint) them in custom colors, but I think haven't been doing that for a while.
    They may have them available, or possibly know which brands are good.
    I always think about getting one, but it always slips my mind.

    Let us know what you find out.

    Is there a site on here to sell satellite radio equipment? This has changed and i find it user unfriendly!

    our lovely drc overlords (thats a joke they are actually a great company) TSS Radio should have you covered for just about whatever you need satellite radio related.
