Satellite Radio Tricks

Satellite radios work by transmitting an FM signal that's picked up by the FM radio in your vehicle. The transmitter in the satellite radio is quite weak, but it only has to transmit a few feet to be picked up by vehicle's antenna. (Some car stereos allow you to plug the satellite radio directly into them with a cable as well.)

I found that if I place my boombox close to my truck, or *on* it as in this photo, I can tune the FM radio in the boombox to the same frequency as the satellite radio and voila... I have satellite radio on my boombox.

Sirius radio rocks, man!
