I sort of hated to see the XM radio moved to the shop, but after all, that's what we got it for. All we need is some warmer weather, and Cliff will wear that thing out. He figures he'll never listen to anything but two stations: Classic Country and Willie's Place.
We're not going to attempt fixing it up in the car ourselves. We'll save that job for our son, Jim, who is familiar with such things. When that's done, we'll be able to take that little receiver out of the boom box, put it on a stand in the car, and we shall have music wherever we go. The boom box also takes batteries. So it can be taken as a portable unit if need be.
We're tickled with this purchase, and thanks to Jim, we got a real bargain. I checked Circuit City and Best Buy, and then at the XM website. None of them had our unit as cheap as the JJ Electronics Ebay store. And they were so helpful when we were having difficulty getting our unit to work; within a half-hour of my e-mailing them with my problem, they e-mailed back with an answer. I highly recommend them.
