I have read the issues with the Roady XT. Mine did the same thing a few weeks ago. Unfortunately I have not found a repair place to send it to. I had to buy a replacement unit off the web. Once I received it, I called XM and they transferred the unit number and I was up and going. If anyone finds a place to repair these, please send me an email. Thx

check the antenna and see if its grounded out anywhere, like if its chaffed and grouned to the car somewhere. If not try turning on the unit outside of the car or using it in the home dock, if it does the same thing its a problem with your unit or car dock
when it reads antenna it means there something wrong with either the connection or the antenna itself, it could be the location of the antenna or the antenna is going bad. if there is no obstructions on the car blocking the antenna i would advise purchasing a new antenna. you can get one at http://shopdelphi.com/consumers/satradio/xpressrc/
there is a bad connection on the voltage input on the radio. look in the hole you will see a copper contact if it wore, you will see a hole in it, you needed to bend it towards the center contact just a little bit. then try it again I worked on mine
Mine is doing the same as well. Been working for 1 year. Now it starts cutting out while listening. I noticed if it is broadcasting the fm frequency menu is there. The minute it cuts out I press Menu and that menu item is gone. It comes back once the radio starts working again. Mine is 1 year old. I got it Christmas of 2006. I do know that if you have it directly connected then this menu item will not appear and that is by design. I think my xm roady xt has gone bad.
