We used the cheapest ($25) Sirius car radio with its hockey puck antenna, and got reception about 90% of the time--the BVI is on the fringes of their broadcast area, Avidyne MLB700 Receiver - SIRIUS Network and you will get some lost signal time as the satellites move. You could probably improve reception with a better antenna.
