Default Just got a Stiletto! (suggestions?)

I was lucky enough to receive a Stiletto 100 for Christmas! This is my first portable Sat Rad and while I have a few first-timer complaints, for the most part I love it! I have a few questions for the Stiletto veterans...

1.) I'm getting a car dock this weekend and plan on having it professionally installed...any specifics I should ask for? I've been hearing about the lackluster FM signals...should I hardwire it or just use the FM transmitter?

2.) While my office is VERY close to a terrestrial repeater, my home gets "so-so" reception. If I bought a home doc, it would strictly be to record shows and charge batteries...so the FM signal strength isn't really an issue...does the home doc really boost the sat signal?

3.) Any step-by-step pages for lil' projects like disassembling the antenna headphones or sanding down the power plug?

Thanks!

I'd hardware if you can. If your radio has some sort of AUX input that would be the best. The cassette thing seems like a pain to me and looks ugly with the wire hanging out of it. If you have to do FM Moduator, you need to get an FM Directly Relay and connect it into your radio anteanna. That is the truly only way the modulator is going to work without static.

Home dock is great with antenna. It's FM Moduator is terrable too. You need to hook it up to a pair of powered speakers or hook into your stereo.

You are on your own for question 3.
