Default Re: XM Radio On 6 Volts Positive?

You have a great setup there.
You are VERY perceptive. I already talked to my grandson about making me a zip drive loaded with music. Right on. This radio gets AM and FM too but I don't want to drill the big 7/8" hole in the roof for the antenna. I was thinking about one of those rubber antennas coming out the top of the dash. Anybody done this? With the split windshield, you would hardly notice it and the inner roof won't ground it because it's wood! Gary Tayman out of Florida built this radio and but they are somewhat pricey.
