Except it doesn't work:

The previous form attempted to add an internally undefined product into the shopping basket. Please notify the webmaster of this problem and the URL which brought you here.

We apologize for the inconvience.

Yep, seems they have the link but no ability to actually buy.

I mean one could break out the soldering iron, detach the left/right earphone, chop them off with a Dremel, and pretty much have a Ready to Go antenna. A piece of velcro that adheres to most clothing would keep it on the shoulder, and I don't think it'd look bad either. Also, for people who use it on airplanes, they'd have something that'd probably fit between the glass and the door on the window.

It's something, not ideal but..

The 'white box' under the shield that has the Cirocomm logo on it is the antenna 'box'. It's attached to the metal disc (antenna element). Considering how many things are crammed into that small amount of space, it'd probably be quite some work to convert into a different form factor or get the Stiletto to work with a 3rd party antenna.

The antenna in the Stiletto itself is something similar to the PA series from Cirocomm.. It has an internal element and may have been 'cut' special for Sirius.

Yep similar.. I'd lop off the ends entirely though and put a piece of velcro.. It'd just the that center piece on the band.

Default Update on Adapter

Well, after spending a whole weekend working on this, I wasn't successful. I am going to keep brainstorming this, because it is definitely something that would be great. If I come up with anything, I'll let you all know. Hopefully someday with the help of VDCHawk and some others on this board we can put our minds together to come up with something.

Ideally Sirius and Directed will understand there is a market for this and come up with something we can buy, plug in, and go. I don't think it's a difficult request.

Can you outline exactly what you tried, so those that are working on a similar solution don't try the same and waste some time. Maybe others will join your quest and help you brainstorm.

I originally bought the MYFI to use in the heavy equipment I operate daily. If I knew in advance that the Stiletto couldn`t be used as a portable in the same way I would of never bought it , even if I couldn`t get NASCAR any more . Being able to use an antenna like the magnetic car type renders this usless to me . I guess this is what happens when you listen to someone telling you how great something is when I should of just done my own research .

Lightbulb

I have found that the circuitry inside the plug-n-play home dock allows the s100 to operate an external antenna from battery. now I just gotta mod it so the big battery fits.

Please take a look at this adapter and let me know what you all think. I found it on http://www.techtoolsupply.com/index....=sirius&Page=1 I asked them a question about it working with the stiletto and will let you know his response. I'm thinking that if we had two of the SMB Adapters we could make it work by putting some RG6 cable in between the two connectors and the Antenna.

I think if we had two of these it may work. Or if they could make an adapter that is Male SMB to Male SMB


What do you think VDCHawk?


Thanks
