I picked up a portable unit about a month ago......Only complaint that I have is that in the AM the signal on it'* kinda weak, but I think a lot of that is my work vehicle screwing it up.

XM 150 is the best comedy channel on there I have found yet.

It'* uncensored.

I have a roady 2 installed in my car. I dont have a problem with it, aside from alot of the stations I use to tune it, are already owned by stations, so sometimes I get static, but not much.

150 Is a good channel

That'* what I have....but I can't put my antenna on the roofs of our delivery vans as they are not magnetic....but it does pretty good being on the hood.

I have it and like it, but I do have problems iwth my Terk XMD1000 modulator. Whenever the engine is running theres a buzz (only noticeable at high volumes) and its sounds a bit tinny. For channel 150 it doesn't really matter though.

I've got one....ch 41 The Boneyard is what I listen to mostly.

Don't put the magnetic antenna on the trunk,it will scratch it. Use 2 pieces of trim tape and stick it to the back window centered on the 3rd brake light.

I've got XM and I love it. I use my headunit to control it. The Terk receiver is hidden under the dash behind the headunit. My antenna is located on the roof about 2-3 inches from the windshield, right above my head. Great reception except for Sonic drive-ins and banks.

I used to listen to 150 alot, but now I listen to Squizz (4. Lately, I've been skipping around and trying different channels. There'* so many to choose from.
