Sirius Radio Dropping Out
« on: November 18, 2013, 01:48:33 AM »
I have had the Sirius signal dropping out more often recently. I ride the same areas that I had in the past with my Rocket and Zumo550 w/XM. So , I was looking at my set up, which is a 660 w/Triumph GPS mount, and realized that the antenna sits behind the gps and depending on the alignment of signal, me, and gps, could it lead to a drop in reception?
I think that I am going to remove the antenna and place an adapter in between to raise the antenna above the gps, and see if that helps.
It might seem strange, but after riding w/sat radio for the last 4/5 years, there is a difference in signal strength between summer and winter. Either that or it is just me.
Just an observation, anyone else notice the same thing?

Is it the Sirius hat is dropping or the connection between the bike and your helmet speakers.  Been a lot of people with connection problems

When it does drop out, I can change the source and have music. The best I can tell it is the Sirius signal.
