XM Radio

Anyone use XM radio to listen to while working? I am tired of never getting any am stations on my walkman here and am looking at buying this one:

http://www.xmradio.com/myfi

The guy at Circuit City said there is an antenna that I will have to strap onto my upper arm to receive the signal outside...

XM and the Myfi is AWESOME!!!

The Myfi is GREAT! The included "lipstick" ant that you would wear is not all that great.

Get this:

And once you listen to XM, be warned...you can't listen to anything else!!!

For lots of good info:

xm radio

I have xm in my truck and xm my-fi while mowing I clip the
anteneta (sp) on the mower usually to the throtle control
if I have to get off mower I can just unplug ant. from unit.
You will also find in some areas the antena is not needed!
Would not be with out XM!!!

i thought about this and will soon be listening to sirius NOT XM but still the same thing.
i will get a docking station that plubs into the radio nad then get a small fm transmitter and mount the antena on my truck for transmission and then i can tune into this on my radio headphones.

what about that??
