Perhaps this situation has been addressed before, but here's my "version":

I currently own an "Audiovox" (older) Express XM home/Car reciever (I've had this unit for about a year and a half)

Recently I've been experiencing "questionable" reception... some stations come in strong (3 bars), some stations are weak, fading in and out and some stations , when tuned indicate that they are "loading" and then I get the "no signal" message.

Any thoughts as to what might be causing this?
-I've called XM ... they tried 'resending" a signal. (and then, of course they try to sell me a new reciever!)
-I've tried resetting the reciever back to its original factory settings.
-I've tried bring the unit back to Best Buy for service.

But all to no avail!! (Right now I'm listening the the SPA channel with no problem but if I switch to, let's say, the VILLAGE channel, I get the "no signal message.)

My outdoor antenna has been in the same location for the last 4 years or so and up until recently, reception has been perfect.

Before I make another investment in XM, I'd like to know what tjhe source of this problem is so I can purchase the appropriate hardware (if I have to at all.)

Any thoughts and help would be most welcome.

Check all connections. Swap out your current antenna-to-radio hardware and see if that changes anything? Try a different receiver unit for a couple hours?
