I have excellent XM satellite radio reception in Baja Sur, Mexico. I have heard from Sirius users that they have difficulties now and then.

bajafisher,

I have gotten spotty XM reception between East Cape and San Jose del Cabo. Seems like it is better some times of the day as if they vary transponder power or something. I agree that north of East Cape it is a slam dunk. Has this been your experience?

I agree about the Cape area. It's much better in the Bay of Conception area. Atmospheric conditions vary it's quality,of course, like rain, clouds, buzzards. I always thought XM had a little better selecton than Sirius, but still has too dang many commercials.

I have gone to their web site. Nothing about coverge areas. XM shows the coverage area. However, there are no marine grade integrated xm radios on the market for now.

Mr.Tata, I don't know about the 'marine grade' XM radio. We just went into Circuit City in San Diego, bought the 'Roady' XM for the vehicle/boat and the 'Delphi' XM for the beachhouse. Seems to work okay.

I believe Bajafisher lives in Mulege for your reference Tata. 120 miles west of SC.

You might want to email Ole Taylor on this one- he may know some with this system that lives there he can hook you up with, so that you can make a call from there the next time you are down.

Or if you know Larry Graff at Glacier Bay, you might ask if his partner, Mr Brown, has this or another sat system on his 60' Ocean that he keeps part of the time at San Carlos and Cabo San Lucas.

Then tell him you just ordered a 33 WC to make his day.

Thanks. FYI, I contacted Ole re motors and he suggested the Honda's for the 330te, which I ordered. Also talked with dealer in Tucson, Mark, who says Honda's are much easier to work on(value adjustments on suzuki's are more difficult, apparently). I'll get in touch with Ole re sirius. I'll tell them about the new boat--at my age, a new boat is like a new girl when I was twenty! Wonderful!
