    hOwdy folks

    been using my sirius sportster<<R since howard first started with no problems other than having to replace those weather prone dot micro antennas every other year

    until this week :bigahh:

    for the past week ive been getting the "aquiring signal" display with no bars and the X in the lower left corner with both my current dot micro AND my backup antenna - so i think its safe to rule out any antenna problems - been babying this radio in a dust free indoor only environment and all of the connections seem fine

    so i'm wondering.... is that what these sportsters do when they die ?
    are there any places that repair tuners in these things ?
    customer service has been useless no surprise
    they just want me to buy a new one
    anyone with similar experiences ?
    i'm a lifetime subscriber
    and just cant let go
    suggestions ?

    I feel your pain SMJ.

    Send a personal message to drdroo. He can fix some of the radios, depending on whats wrong with them.
