Default Signal in South Jersey

I live in Collingswood, New Jersey, close enough to Philadelphia that you walk there. I have been unable to get a good signal, and when I do it is intermittent. Are there any other's experiencing this problem?

Yep it's been going on for almost two days now, I called the lame ass tech supp and the runaround. As far they will tell you the repeater in Philly is working.

I was told to put my antenna on the roof. No problem with that.

Regardless of what I told the tech rep, she didn't hear/understand me. I wanted to strangle her.

Mine just started to go out, about a half hour ago. Now it is stuck in acquiring signal mode. I just went for ride to get milk and the one in my truck was fine, so it looks like the repeater is going down. It's not the weather causing this one.

I'm also in Collingswood NJ and I am having the same problem. This happened before and I believe both times it was caused by extreme storms. Last time lightning and this time heavy wind.

I'm in Pine Hill, and been having the same probs. Go to bed with a signal, wake up with nothing. I had a signal all the way to philly today, but once i got in my office, it was gone.

Good info. At least we know that they know the repeaters are down. Seems weird that they all went down. Every repeater in the USA?

Took the time to explain to Sirius customer service that I have two radios and neither are receiving a terr signal and that I have two friends that are in different parts of Philadelphia and they are having the same problem. I got no answer from the person on the phone and an email telling me I might need to buy a radio filter for my car or try a different FM station. I assume it was a form letter as I never told Sirius I was having trouble with a car unit. there is something going on. By the way, the customer service sucks.
