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!

Safety Tips for On-Street Bicycling.Ride predictably, act like a good driver. Drivers are used to the patterns of other drivers. Ride in a straight line, obey traffic signs and signals, and do not weave in and out of traffic. Riding predictably reduces your chances of a crash with a motor vehicle. <br />Look, signal and look again before changing lanes or making a turn. Establish eye contact with drivers. Seeing a driver is often not enough. Make sure drivers see you before executing a turn or riding in front of a turning car. <br />Watch out for opening car doors. Be prepared for the possibility that a car door may be opened in your path. When possible, leave room between yourself and parked cars (3 feet is generally recommended) so that you can avoid a door that opens unexpectedly. <br />Stay visible. Wear brightly colored clothing for daytime riding. At night, use reflective materials and lights. <br />Use Your bell. Your bell alerts drivers, pedestrians and other cyclists to your presence, it is required by law. <br />Wear a helmet. Required by law for children age 13 or younger and working cyclists, helmets are a good idea for cyclists of all ages. While supplies last, the official New York City bicycle helmet will be fitted and distributed free of charge at DOT Safety City locations. Call 311 to schedule a fitting. In order to receive a helmet you must: be present to get a helmet; learn how to properly fit and wear a helmet before you receive it; have a parent or legal guardian present to sign a waiver for children under age 18; for adults over age 18 receiving a helmet you must sign a waiver.

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.

Standard Horizon HX 471. Antenna is to long to fit in Dive Canister. Can I removed antenna or replace with more flexable antenna?


Yes, as long as it is the right length and impedance, you can use a piece of wire! ... If you can get a smaller "antenna" and it fits, it will work fine. You could try disassembling the "Old" antenna, inside, you will find that a it can then be bent or such, use heat shrink to seal it, when modified.

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!
