The Sirius satellite system consists of a number of high elevation satellites in geosynchronous orbit.

NOTE
• The digital signals from the Sirius satellites are line-of-sight, which means that physical obstructions such as bridges, tunnels, etc, may temporarily interfere with signal reception.
• Avoid any obstructions, such as metallic objects transported on roof racks or in a ski box, or other antennas that may impede signals from the SIRIUS satellites.
