Sirius signal issues evening 13 Sept 2011?

Yesterday (13 Sept 2011) at about 4 or 5 pm and most of the night my Sirius radio was periodically loosing signal and my antenna has a clear view of the sky on top of my car roof. Did anyone notice or have issues as I am trying to determine if something with my antenna? Thanks

I was in the car from 7am until 2am yesterday (minus stops for fuel and food, and about three hours from about 2pm-5pm) and had no issues at all.

Thanks for replying. Mine was fine all day driving. We had some heavy rains in Ottawa region and after that I seem to have the issues for the night. I checked in the morning and it seemed to have a good signal. Not sure if water is getting into the antenna, however, it is a new antenna (low profile one). I will have to check again tonight and see if poor signal. Can't easily change antenna to test as my sirus tuner is behind the dash connected to the car radio.

I had some intermittent reception issues myself last night around 730pm in Toronto with my car receiver. Nothing today though.

Could this have anything to do with the solar flare that took out Dish Network yesterday?

I have a life time subscription on my truck radio and on the way to work lost signal at 7am.Then text on radio told me to call Sirius. All channels were showing unsubscribed channel message. At noon time radio text read sub update and it started working after that.

Sirius Reception Issues in Calgary since Sunday

Has anyone else in Calgary had issues with reception at home with their Sirius radio? Up until Sunday (09/25/2011) it was working fine but it still out as if today (09/27/2011). I can get reception if I move the antenna outside and fifteen feet away from the house but this wasn't required before.

Trouble in Calgary

Yes. I am having the exact same problem. I have contacted Sirius and they say it is my antenna. I have a new antenna and it will also not pick up the signal. All was working until Sunday. It will work outside but not inside.

Sirius Reception in Calgary

Is anyone experiencing a degradation in reception in Calgary as of 04/14/2012? I have had my radio in the same position in my house for at least the last five years with no problems and full reception. On 04/14/2012 this all changed. A friend's radio is getting no signal at all.
