No, you can not use any satellite radio to connect to Sirius. The hardware for each (XM or Sirius) is designed specifically for one or the other. For Sirius, there is a code on the back of the radio that they need to activate the service. It is specific only to Sirius equipment.

Yes, of course.

Why does your Sirius radio loose the signal without any obstacles blocking the antenna?

Your sirius radio is advertised as "satellite" radio, and that's how they distribute it out and around the country from their headquarters studio, but that's not how it gets to your car. When you listen to it, you're listening to a local ground repeater, not to a satellite. So when you say there are no obstacles, it doesn't matter whether or not you can see the sky; you need to be looking at trees and buildings that may be blocking your horizontal path, just like any other radio, TV, cellphone, etc.

Pick Your Sports Pleasure With Satellite Radio?

Satellite radio has become a huge thing over the past couple years. For a small monthly fee, users can experience commercial-free radio, with stations covering everything from popular music to comedy. There are two main providers of Satellite radio that users can choose from, XM or Sirius. Even though the two radio giants merged recently, you’ll still have a decision to make when it comes to picking your satellite radio poison. While both carry different stations, you can find just about anything you want with either choice. With most people, though, the decision comes down to one thing: sports. Now, if you’re not a sports radio listener, this probably isn’t going to matter to you at all, and honestly, you’ll be fine selecting either XM or Sirius, because the same array of music, talk and comedy span both stations. If you are a sports listener, however, this is where your decision gets tricky, because even though there are sports stations offered on both XM and Sirius, each provider carries one major sport. XM radio carries every Major League Baseball game, while Sirius is the provider of every NFL football game. Now, you’ll still be able to hear some of every sport on both stations, but XM and Sirius have dedicated stations devoted to these sports. It’s one of the best features satellite radio provides, the ability to listen to any baseball or football game. You can also select from stations featuring coverage of NASCAR, the NBA, the NHL, soccer, the PGA Tour and multiple sports-talk stations. Since the two companies merged , prices are going to be comparable for service. So, really, your decision is your sport’s desire. If you’re a football fan, you’re going to want to go with Sirius. If you’re a fan of baseball, stick with XM. Just like television, there are several packages that you can choose from, most of which include the actual satellite radio. The service itself runs between $10 and $20 per month, depending on the package, and you can expect to pay between $100 and $200 for the actual radio. Satellite radio provides a lot to people, from popular music, to politics and talk radio and even stations dedicated completely to comedy. One of the most popular features, though, is the ability to listen to almost any baseball or football game, but that leads to a decision. You’ll have to pick your favorite sport and stick with it, and you can’t go wrong.
