Panama Sirius Hi Gain Antenna

I've heard some folks can receive Sirius satellite radio with a high gain antenna in Panama. Looking for experiences and suggestions for specific antennas.

We have friends in the San Blas who have Sirius - they appear to just have the basic small puck antenna.

I have the small standard outdoor home antenna, but don't get reception in Panama. Its well outside the published foot print of their satellite. Get it in Guate w this same standard antenna, but just barely.
