For Sirius I would have to guess the PNP1. It looks like it was built in someones garage for christ sakes



For XM I would have to guess the Sony PNP

I have one of those sitting in my "Box 'o Cords & Shit" in the basement...my first satellite radio, and I got it for a steal: $99 through the "XM Friends & Family" program.

Love that big dock/sleeve dealie. What a monster!! I've seen that one around the internets before, but never in person. Also, the Jensen, seen one of those with the big wires coming off of it running to the display. What a joke those things look like now.

The PNP1 was a 2003 model. The Jensen/Audiovox SSR2000 was available for Sirius from the start, in 2002. It's the one with the CB-like control/display module.

Audiovox Sirius SSR-2000 100-Channels Base CB Radio - Product details and features - DealTime

All the other original Sirius models as I recall were pure tuners with no display or controls. They required a same-brand "Sirius-ready" head unit. You know customers were breaking down the doors for those.

You did get if for a steal, I paid Circuit City $300 for that radio in 2002. That antenna was way too big, but had a very strong magnet. Also the wire was very thick so there was no sticking it in the molding like what is done today. I remember thinking wow 100 channels I will never hear all there is to hear. I wish mine still worked for sentimental reasons. I will buy yours for a good price, if it works.

I just saw one of those Sony XM radios on Craigslist! I don't want it, but if anyone else here is in Cincinnati, that's where it is.

That was my first radio.
