    About a month ago, my Sirius (not XM) Dash Kit (Not sure of the Model name anymore) started losing signal often, going to Check Antenna Connection and Acquiring Signal, sometimes with no trees around. I replaced everything; the dock, the antenna, the power and even shelled out 75 bucks for a new unit - no real change.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else having this issue lately?

    Bizarre. I have not noticed any change in service on my 300. IIRC, my radio uses Sirius tech. Some people claim that the terrestrial repeaters are being decommissioned. Could that be happening in your area?

    Possibly. I might have to call them. It’s irritating as hell. Btw, I had to correct, mine is Sirius, too

    Yep, and an auxiliary input that plugs into the Aux jack on my stereo
