I also listened to Sirius online before joining. I ordered my free radio (Kenwood) from Sirius in NOV 2002 and continued to listen online till it arrived Feb 2003. I still remember listening to the Blues Brothers 2003: A Chase Odyssey. Any one who doesn't know, it was a 4-hour commercial-free program which aired from 11:30 PM (ET) on Tuesday, December 31, 2002 to approximately 3:30 AM (ET) on Wednesday, January 1, 2003 on Sirius channel 100, The Galaxy. That Kenwood had 3 different parts that needed to be installed all over my car. From the Kenwood, I have upgraded radios every year and they keep getting smaller. I went to a Sportster and then a JVC KT-SR2000 and now a Starmate replay.

Now all those Kenwood parts are all inside my current Starmate replay! Amazing what a few years can do!!!

Post Trumansburg, NY

I am originally from Auburn, NY. I bought mine January 2005. I asked my wife if she liked it and she said no big deal. Then two weeks later she had to borrow my car and when she came home she said you need to get one for my car.

Greetings from Glen Cove, NY
One of only two cities on Long Island!

My first was the Audiovox PNP 2 purchased after Howard announced his moving to Sirius, back in October 2004. By the time it arrived, I found this site and decided I really wanted the Xact XTR1 with the PowerPod.

So, my parents got the Audiovox while I picked up the Xact which is my main radio even today! Still, the only true portable out there. I have taken it with me on trips all around the country and it has worked great for me.

I eventually had to upgrade my parents to a new, smaller unit so I picked up a Starmate for them which they've been happy with. The old Audiovox went to my neighbor who liked it so much that he upgraded to a Sportster and bought a second one for his home. Unfortunately, the old PNP2 no longer works but, it served its function well.

I've got a question maybe someone could help me with...
I'm a college football fan, so I was wondering about this -- Most states have either a "University of..." or a "...State University" or both. (Example: University of Michigan / Michigan State University). They're usually those big campus universities with the big football team and athletic program. The only one I can think of in New York is Syracuse University. How does Syracuse fit in to the state's university system? Am I missing something?
Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question, I'm just curious like that.

Syracuse is a private school. Prior to the ACC raid of the Big East, that conference had the most private schools in I-A (with BC and Miami also being private, plus half-credit for Notre Dame... further Pitt and Temple were historically private schools).

There's a State University of New York system that was founded comparatively recently (1948). The community colleges come under the SUNY umbrella, as do the main SUNY campuses (Stony Brook, New Paltz, Geneseo, etc.). A number of the campuses are contract colleges, being part of a private school that receives substantial funding from the SUNY system (some of these arrangements like the Ivy League's only agricultural school at Cornell predate SUNY by decades). The University at Buffalo was itself a private school that was taken over by the State in the '60s (I believe the institution fell into serious financial trouble... much like Pitt & Temple).

There's also CUNY (the City University of New York), which is jointly funded by the State and City of New York...
In the dog days, people look to Sirius.

Thanks for the info! Interesting stuff. I guess I had never realized that Syracuse is a private school.

Yeah, the New York college system is screwed up. I go to the non-state side of Alfred University. The state-side part houses the engineering and some arts, but has no relation to the SUNY Alfred state school across the street. Oy.

Post Long Island

Hey just a quick note Sirius Rocks! Should NYC and Long Island brake away from Upstate New York. We are the real NY! We should be called NEW YORK and the upstate should be called "NOBODY BUT US HICKS LIVE HERE." That should be our 51st state.
