    I found mine at a dealer in Virginia from a Reverb posting. All it took was a little time on the UPS truck to get it to Oregon. Once I get my Clark OM, sometime around February or March, it will be...

    Funny, on the West Coast there is just the opposite experience. Drive behind mountains or through a forest and the signal vanishes, sometimes for a half hour or more. Since Sirius came with a one...
