Post FINALLY got the Stiletto....

So, for a relative noob like me, what are some of the cool things you guys are doing with your Stiletto? What are some good tips and tricks you guys have come up with the past few months since the initial release?

Actually the first month or so most of us stood on our head and went around waving our arms trying to see how well we could receive the signal without wearing those funky headphones.

Now that most of us have car and home docks which makes life must easier. No real tricks have come out other than how to reset the device

Step 1... see if you're near a repeater.

Step 2... see if you're near a repeater.

Step 3... gloat.

both my house and my work are about 5 miles from a repeater, yet i still can't get a signal inside of my house or my work

But I will be picking up the home/car docks today, so that should help immensely.

www.dogstarradio.com/sirius_map.php just report to DogStarRadio that the repeater near you is inactive.

Edit: Well, Sirius put out a PR earlier in the month or two that they'd be shutting down repeaters, including Knotsville. Sorry man.

Realwx? Are you for real? It's not April 1st. . . . I looked at the Sirius on-line press releases and didn't see anything about shutting down any repeaters. Where did you find that release?

The docks make the difference for the all important gap filling collection points. The strategy as the Stiletto fills up will be interesting. A high class problem I suppose.

I can't find the car docks anywhere in Knoxville. Best buy, circuit city, everywhere....no luck. Home kits are readily available, but I passed on those since I just figured I would listen to it via wifi and NOW that's not working...


And I seriously hope the Knoxville repeater isn't shut down. That's one of the reasons I picked up the stiletto as my house is maybe 2 miles from the repeater.

There are some here:

Circuit City
107 C River Hills Road, Asheville, NC 28805

It says it's 82 miles away from Knoxville 37901.

It might be too far for you to go though.

yeah that's a little too far. Thanks for lookin though. I set up an email notification for when the Knoxville store gets them in stock, hopefully it won't be too long.

Thanks Realwx for the suggestion. I did send an email to dogstar requesting that the Harrisburg, PA repeater be labeled inactive since it was shut off on Oct. 13 due to the FCC request. Others should know that they won't get reception in Harrisburg from the repeater.

I thought it would be to far. I was just trying to help out a fellow SBS'er.

Good luck on your hunt.
