martes Sirius radio is starting to show signs of hard use, and it something of a trick to operate. We decided on the way back from FC that we needed to replace it.
And so I made two discoveries, first that Sirius has a perfectly acceptable basic model on sale for $20. The second was that anyone with a sirius account can now tune the Howard Stern channel over an internet connection as well as over the radio.
Originally this was not the case - only certain generic stations were tunable over the internet, and so I had pretty much forgotten that feature as being useless. But now you CAN tune Howard 100 & 101 over the computer. This means the new satellite radio won't be subject to the abuse the other one had as once its mounted in the car it can stay there.
