Thread: Picking up other signals

    Default Picking up other signals

    All,

    Have a weird issue where if I am next to a big rig, or other satalite equipped vehicle and they are listening to a satalite station, even though I do not subscribe to the service, I pick up thier station on 88.1 FM. I have tested this extensively, and even drove next to a semi-truck for 100+ miles listening to Howard Stern, if I got about 50Ft away, it would go back to normal programming, then getting back in to range, I picked up the station again.

    Anyone else have this issue? Not that I'm complaining but truckers typically are listening to country radio all the time...

    Best regards,

    ~Me

    He probably had a satellite radio hooked up to an FM transmitter - in my old car I had one hooked up to my iPod and could listen to it on my radio 88.1 FM (you could set it for different stations)
