Question about Delphi SKYFi3 Satellite Radio Receiver

1 Answer

Antenna I have the SkyFi3 and want to use it while riding my motorcycle. The problem is this: The antenna/headphone won't fit under my helmet. I can easily plug in my helmet headphone into the SkyFi3 to listen, but I still have to use the bulky antenna/headphone to get reception. What I need is an antenna that I can plug into the unit and maybe stick to the top of my helmet. The little square car antenna would be ideal, but the antenna port in the unit isn't the same size as the port on the docking station. Any ideas?

Wear the antenna headphones around your neck and use ear buds. Works like a charm!

When using headset with skyfy3 display says check antenna .


Are you using the special Delphi headphone with the built=in antenna? There is NO antenna built into the SkyFi3 like the MyFi - you must have the special headphones with the antenna built in. okay?

My skyfi 3 keeps displaying no signal and antenae is in the clear? Any recommendation. Ive updated firmware.


Your dock connector has a cold solder. Resolder the antenna pins to the board. The antenna pins are the 1 n-shaped pin (connects to 2 pads) with 1 pin in the middle. Resolder your middle pin.

I have a Stratus 5 radio on a motorcycle that keeps losing antenna "NO ANTENNA". all connections are good and have tried 3 different antenna's


Perhaps the actual antenna connection, socket, is broken where it solders to the board, or the socket itself has a problem. This is more likely than bad antennas. remember occam's razor.

I have the Delphi MyFi xm2go. It is not the newer version, SA10113. My problem...It is no longer transmitting to my car's FM radio. While it is sitting in the cradle in the car, it 's display shows that it...


Make sure that this is NOT a "Sure Connect" version that has a very weak FM transmitter, but the older original model with a bland box. Make sure no earphone is plugged-in, then go to the menu and set the FM frequency and set the FM output level and you should be all set..

Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Repeater


You begin by setting up your existing (((XM))) antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM))) Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal transmitted from the unit.

Once the power and antenna are attached, both blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.

Once you have this setup, place the Repeater Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your (((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does not require any separate power connections. Hope this helps!
