Where is everyone mounting their satellite radio antennas and which antenna are you using? I have the Sirius kit for Sony which comes with a little magnetic antenna, but since I have an Illusion tower, it's useless. I saw this marine specific antenna:

Has anyone used it or others?

Mine sits right in front of the dashboard, but under the windsheild. I have the wire hidden under the dash. I always get a signal unless someone throws a shirt or hat up there.

I have the unit mounted by the cupholder in front of the driver windshield as well. I have the wire coming out of the cupholder hole, and the antenna is secured with double sided tape.

I slide a small flat magent in one of the sleeves of the bimini and stick the antenna on top of the bimini.

I just installed this:

on my X-45, port side in front of the window. I went all the way and drilled a hole to mount.

Mine cut out alot under the window. In front of the bow nav light works killer.

I have mine on the dash, under the ws. It's attached with velcro. No problems.

I have the same thing as Paul mounted with 3M double sided foam tape pads. No problem with bimini and shirts. I had my last boat mounted on the tower and threw it on the dash on my new boat for a temporary hook up and ended up deciding to leave it there.

I have mine mounted under the windshield, it cuts out for a second or two anytime I turn to pick up a downed rider...

I got tired of the signal cutting out. Everything from a sweatshirt, to towels when parked, to the canyon mountains when the boat was leaning would make it cut out. I moved it to the top tower and its worked flawless since.

Between the bimini, the glass, a sweatshirt, the tower bars, towell...etc....Your asking alot mounting under the window IMO. But one signal cut per day is too many for me.
Maybe i am just asking too much, but i am much happier after spending the time to run it up the tower.
BTW...mine is the mag mount but stuck to the flat part of the aluminum 210 tower with a 1" velcro dot.
