Default Sirius Dish signals question

I have Sirius through Dish network but would like to be able to play it through my standalone stereo receiever in my garage which is stand alone as well..is there anything out there that can be hooked up to my garage receiver to pickup the Sirius stream from my Dish signal?..Trying to avoid having to purchase a home kit along with my new starmate

Get a Wireless RF Transmitter... plug it in to the audio out of your TV, plug the receiver into the wall, plug RF cables into the receivers, and viola, Sirius without a home kit.

That's no problem....you need something called a Ramsey FM25. It's either sold as a kit, or you can pick them up assembled on Ebay, such as this:

http://tinyurl.com/y5gkvv

All you do is set the transmitter to a frequency that is blank in your area (explained in the instructions), run audio to it, hit the ON button and viola!...instant radio station. It's powerful to cover at least a large city lot and with a little work can go further.

I've bought from this guy selling in the above link and would gladly do so again.

hook your dish receiver to your stereo and get an auxillary set of speakers to run to the garage or get RECOTON 900MHZ wireless speakers.
