We tried XM but couldnt get a good signal. We now use Sirrius, and I think Charles uses it too, but could be wrong.....we still have a oouple hours a day when it fades in and out, but the other option being three radio stations... it's fantastic!!!

We have used XM for three years. You need a line of sight slightly to the South. If you try to put it on the wrong side of your building you won't "see" the satellite. XM and Sirius merged recently and their packages of channels may change.

We had XM for 4 yeras at Tastes of Thailand, only lost a few channels now and again. Rest of the time worked great, but no buildings south of us. Charles has Sirrius, he did have XM to start with. We left the island a year ago.

I've carried XM (in my car) all over mainland Belize, from Corozal to Sarteneja to Benque to PG and points in between and am sorry to report I rarely was able to get a decent signal. Sirius seems to have a better signal. Never tried either in San Pedro, though.

How this all will change when the Sirius/XM merger is consummated, I don't know. Not sure if they will combine satellites or just use one set or the other.

I have 2 Sirius radios in San Pedro and get fabulous reception at all times of the day, even very cloudy weather.
The antenna is facing north.
