Question about Sirius Satellite Radio Sirius Sportster SP-R1 Satellite Radio Receiver

1 Answer

My mom is moving to a new apartment on the 3rd floor of an apartment building...she presently lives on the 6th floor of another building and, other than the same occasional reception problems that I'm sure EVERYONE experiences, she LOVES her Sirius SP-R1 and corresponding SP-B1 Boombox. Should I run into reception problems at the new apartment, is there any kind of antenna that I can purchase other than the one that comes with the receiver that will maximize the performance of her Sirius radio?

Router issues in my apartment.

When to moved into the penthouse, there are more walls between the wireless router and the laptop in the bedroom. The walls are probably reinforced concrete walls which will stop or weaken the radio waves penetrating into different rooms. When you lived in a house this was not a problem.
The only way to solve this problem is to move the wireless router near an opening such as a door and move the laptop as close as possible to the wireless router to get a better signal strength.
The outer way is to install a wireless repeater or connect a long network cable to the router and the laptop.
