How to get SIRIUS in an Airliner

Monday, January 16, 2006

For some reason I have gotten a good deal of emails about this, back in October I shared how I get LIVE SIRIUS radio in airliners. People want to know how to make this work.. Here is a post that shows you all you need to make it work. In that post I showed off a battery that worked with all the SIRIUS 12V units like the Starmates, Sportsters, etc. I just flew a few weeks back and used the set up with the S50, & S50 home kit.. It worked very nice, this battery can switch from 3V-12V so it is also works with the S50... When I make my return flight on Friday I will take some photos of the S50 in the AIR... You can look at the photos of the Starmate Replay at 35,000 ft here

Don't worry I would not fly AirTran! I have no problems with United, USAirways or Southwest

No reason to do it on AirTran, don't they offer XM already?

Anyway, I've been doing this with xm2go for a while now. Works great with a south-facing window! :)

SIRIUS works on both south and north facing windows. Better on north side... I do not know the point of the "Air-Tran worker" but yest XM is in most of their fleet. If I would fly them I would still use my SIRIUS set up..
