Sounds like you are driving in an area where the FM station has a strong signal in the afternoon. The Sirius receivers allow you to change the FM frequency in the Menu options, just switch to an open channel, not one that is used by an active station. Something else I have done since I live in ATL and have lots of FM stations, just remove your antennae (if possible) to decrease the signals from the FM stations.

Some receivers have a piece that you can wire up from the unit to the radio and when you turn on the Sirius, it cuts the radio antenna off.

Guess I lucked out with mine…I have the unit that allows you to pick a frequency between 87.7-107.9

I have a friend that bought one and had the same problem. It was cutting in and out and he heard the local radio station coming in. They also charged him on his bill more than what was agreed upon and wanted to charge $2.00 invoice fee per month. He had it shut off! Did not even have it for a week.

How can he be charged more than agreed upon? Sirius only has one price/one plan...

actually they have a couple plans
12.95 a month or you can pay a year up front (which gives you a month free) or lifetime (of the radio...not you)

There lifetime of the unit fee can be transfered for like 50 dollars I heard. Also they have a 2 year plan which gives you 3 months free.

If you have a cassette player in you car/truck you can a cassette adapter from Radio shack. I use that when I travel because it's hard to find a blank frequency when you are in different areas. Also you do not have to have the volume cranked up as high.
