Will the SIRIUS | XM signal ever come through in homes/stores/work as clear as an AM/FM signal??? I have SIRIUS. I have my antenna outside. I still have dropouts all the time.:cuss:
There will be a new more powerful Stationary Satellite from Sirius that is launched at the end of July that will noticeably increase your signal. In particular in the home. So the answer to your question would be yes.
The other thing is that there are better and stronger home antennas then the standard black pivoting antenna that comes with the Boomboxes and Home Kits. The better Antennas range from $40 to about $130 and they wouldn't likely include those standard since many people live in areas where they simply aren't necessary.
The $40 Outdoor Home Antenna that we offer for the most part will prevent dropouts almost anywhere in the lower 48. Just have to make sure it's facing Minnesota or so.
you should look into trying a new antenna.
You were right. I ordered a new antenna sat. night from tss. for $14.99. Got it in the mail mon. I can't believe it got here so fast. My old antenna the bars from the satellite signal were all over the place. This new one the signal is steady. So far no dropouts. :bigthumbup:
Sirius subs are more prone to dropouts as their satellites are not geostationary like XMs.
