im a new yorker - and while i am still waiting for my stiletto to come- i can say that reception is great in nyc compared to other areas. in my apartment my antenna is no where near a window and i get a flawless signal. and driving around the city- you get a signal even under some buildings- overall the stiletto should be great in nyc

I'm in Jackson Heights, and the signal's fine as long as i'm within 5 feet of a window. It definitely doesn't get signal everywhere...

I haven't tried to get satellite signal walking around the neighborhood. I got the home kit, stuck the antenna in the windowsill, and just listen to recorded programs when it's not in its dock, and that works great for me.

do you have the antenna on the home kit or just the standard headphones antenna that came with the unit?

I'm considering getting the home kit or the boom box, basically just for the antenna, but I can't decide if it's really going to boost the signal. In my apartment it tends to sut out a lot unless the unit is sitting on the windowsil.

Default Not so great once you're out of the city

I live in NJ and bought the Stilleto so I can listen on my commute via NJ Transit to NYC. What Sirius fails to point out is that unless you are in range of a repeater, you MUST have a clear shot of the sky with the headset. For me, this means that I can't tune in until I hit Woodbridge and get in range of a repeater in Newark. Sitting next to a window doesn't help until I'm in repeater range.

On the plus side, for you, once I get near the city I get great reception (though it fades a little right next to Newark Airport).
