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.
