Can anyone tell me how to get an XM Radio hook-up on Ambergris Caye? I can purchase equipment in the States, but I need to know how the subscription end works in Belize.

We have an XM unit here in PG but never had it activated. We have a neighbor who has Serius and it works great. He brought it down from the US and activated it over the net and pays with US CC. Does anyone know what happened with the merger, as I did not want to activate it until I know which company was going to be in control.

That explains it then, I have been looking online and found no info. As I understasnd it the systems use two different satellite systems and after the merger, who knows which system they will settle on. One will be obsolete.

Different areas of the country experience different signal strengths. I have friends with both XM and Sirius.

I have XM and it works most of the hours of the day. In the summer it was fading out around 6 pm or.

We just activated on line - easy.

I have used Sirius for 2 yrs with no problem. Certain antennas work better than others. Antenna must have a NNW exposure. Currently I have a Starmate radio and this outdoor antenna, which gives me 24-hour coverage:
