Sirius XM Antenna

Does anyone know where the Sirius XM antenna is located? I can't find it, and the dealer didn't know.

Thanks, guys.

It is for the automatic lights.


How does the sirius antenna get signal through the tops if it cuts out going under overpasses?

Signals go through plastic better than concrete and steel.

simple enough. Thought it had to have direct line of sight.

Yes it has to be direct line of sight to the satellite. It really depends on the density of the material, plastic, cloth, no big deal. The second you put anything metal over the antenna it's out, even a gum wrapper.

The frequency of the satellite signal is around 1.2 GHz, close to the frequency of a microwave oven. Signals in that range will penetrate glass, reasonable thicknesses of plastics, vinyl, etc., but not metal.

FYI its designed as a radome. The same way that outdoor satellite receivers use those big plastic domes.

I got rid if Sirius last year. Tired of never hearing a punch line. Never a complete song. The never ending drop outs. Sirius used to have terrestrial antennas that would help but in the case of the Jeep, it never did. Pandora is also commercial free if you want to pat $37.00 a year, which I'm happy to do.

I can't stand the cheap sound of sirius, the way it's all chopped up. Sounds like my daughters cheapo MP3 player, like i'm getting about 2/3 of the actual song. No thanks.

I don't know whats up with yours because mine sounds great. My free year is coming up and I will probably not continue it, but that just because of the price. Pandora is a better route as long as you can get cell service
