Default Sirius Radio's Popping up Everywhere.

I'm really starting to see more and more Sirius radios popping up everywhere.

Yesterday, A Repair man came to the house to fix the dishwasher. He had a sportster in his truck.

Later in the day I went to a locksmith and they had a radio in the window for the shop. Interesting to listen to the radio, he has the antenna going out the front door laying in the bushes in front of the store. ( not a very professional install )

It used to be a rare sighting that I see a Sirius radio, now I'm seeing them pop up everywhere.

It makes me feel good to know that I'm not the only one with an "antenna spotting" hobby. Freaks!

Nearly every new BMW I see has the tell-tale Sirius roof antenna. I, too, am noticing more Sirius receivers and/or antennas (for built-in car radios).

Where do you get them? I think they should be included with every radio.

I drive often on the PA turnpike, everytime I see an antenna, I try to figure out if it is XM or Sirius, then I look for the install. My wife thinks I'm a dork, but hey, it makes the drive go by.........

in the past I have found some good stickers on Ebay. Not to big and not to small. I used to have a Sirius logo on the back window of my tacoma but took it off after I lifted an edge while washing the truck. Now I just have a small Howard fist in the lower right of the back window.
