Question re: Satellite Radio Reception


Recommended Posts

I installed a satellite radio over the weekend and I'm experimenting with antenna locations. Is the signal a yes/no situation, or are there grades of signals? I know there's a signal strengh indicator on the receiver (like a cell phone) but is the quality of sound thru the loudspeakers affected by signal strength?


I'm getting good reception now with the antenna lying on the rear deck inside the car. Will I get better quality sound if I move the antenna to the recommended location (on roof, six inches from edge)??


The satellite radio set up on my old car used the cassette adapter. I always thought it looked cheesy with the wire coming out of the cassette deck, but the sound was CD quality. With my new set-up, (FM modulator with METRA connectors), the music does seem to have a "broadcast" feel to it.
