Sirius/XM in Baja California Sur

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I came to this site due to Sirius/XM reception problems in Los Cabos - over 1,000 miles south of San Diego. I take my Edge there and it works fine, but bridges, buildings and mountains break-up the signal. I realize the footprint of the signal may place Los Cabos at the limit of reception. But I wondered if there was a "super-antenna" that worked better than the stock kit antenna... Reading on the site I see that the same problems I have show up for subscribers in the mountains of the U.S. But I wonder about others taking the satellite radio to Mexico. Any tips?

I've listened to some of the talk radio shows and heard listeners from Mexico (one time, it was a guy from Puerto Vallarta) that called up. So they must be getting signal somehow.

There's a few websites out there that show the orbits of the satellites.

If the satellite signal is physically blocked no "super antenna" could help.

The only reason you even hear satellite radio under bridges is due to the buffer. If you were stopped under the bridge you would lose the sound. If you go under fast enough the buffer makes up for momentary lack of signal.

Some bridges/tunnels/parking structures have signal repeaters. No line of sight to the satellites, yet they receive signals just fine. This has nothing to do with the buffer.
