Default Sirius Weather & Radio ?

Is there a Y-Cable so you only need one Sirius Antenna, so you can run one cable to the radio receiver and one to the weather receiver. Or am I going to have to install two Sat radio antennas to the Hard Top?

Thanks

You don't say whether you have one or two receivers. If you have a Raymarine Sirius radio for instance, it does both the weather and the radio. It only needs one antenna. If you have a weather receiver and a separate radio then you need two antennas. They do make splitters that will allow one antenna to do both receivers.

Yes I have two receivers, one for the radio and one for the weather. I am just looking for the splitter or Y-adapter so I can use one antenna instead of having to install two antennas

Thanks,

Where do you get those from I have checked with several marine elec. dealers with no luck.

Google for satellite radio parts and accessories. I found it earlier. The problem was that the splitter cost the same or more than another antenna. I had an empty spot from where I had taken down a Loran so I just put a second one there. No problem.

If you have the Raymarine weather your best bet is to get the audio out of that and use the aux input on your stereo. You can then control the sirius radio from your C or E series display.
