Default Issue with FM signal from Sportster Replay to car FM radio station

I realize that the FCC cracked down on sat radios output for the FM signal to the car radio, but this is ridiculous. If everyone's sirius radio is like mine they had might as well remove the option and state that they have to be wired to in some way to whatever radio you are using.

I called and told them my issue. I am in the LA and Orange County area and there is really only two stations you could use due to all the radio stations out here. 88.3 and 106.9. All I get is static and can barely hear what the sat radio is broadcasting. They said that their engineers had worked on a antenna that you plug into your Sat radio head and then stick the antenna on the radio next to your car antenna and this helps. I said cool. I have the FM direct in my truck to my radio but I want to take my Sportster with me in the company car so I bought a second docking station, antenna and cigarette plug. They sent me an FM direct. Not what I need. I can't plug straight into a FM antenna in a car I use for the day. Any ideas out there.

Unfortunately, the FM mods are really THAT bad in the new radios. I had to run an AUX cable into my iPod alarm clock (I'm lucky it had an aux in) from my Stiletto because the signal is so weak, when I was plugging the second battery in to charge, it was causing enough interference to cause static in the signal.

The killer? The Stiletto was sitting RIGHT NEXT to the alarm clock.
I'm a dual subscriber; I get the best of both worlds
I'm also rather open minded; I listen to almost any kind of music out there.
