    My husband lives and breathes the Opie and Jimmy Show. It was formally O &A. HIs birthday is tomorrow. :) What can I buy that would work in the UPS truck to get satelite radio?
    Please help.
    You all work so hard to not have some entertainment.

    A satellite radio, or an online subscription, and could stream through phone.

    I used a portable radio with XM on it for a short time. The antenna was crap and lost signal nearly every time I turned the truck. I installed it into my personal vehicle properly and it works fine. I now use an Ipod and Bluetooth speaker in the UPS truck.
  4. Just get the app and an online account; it's cheaper to upgrade your data to allow for the steaming then to buy a whole new set up and a contract with siriusxm.

    I listen to opie and jimmy every morning.

    I just put my iphone in my cupholder. (it creates a speaker effect) my truck is kind of quiet though.. But just buy a bluetooth portable speaker..then just pay sirius for his phone (12-15 a month) and done deal.

    Also..I have a portable cell phone charger. Because it will kill his battery super fast. This way he can keep a charged phone. i actually have 2 of them.

    this or anything like this will work

    if not a mini blue tooth speaker..any type of speaker (boombox) with a AUX cord will do the trick

    I added XM to my portable am/fm/cb box in my tractor when XM first came out. The antennae can be problematical. I ran mine outside and stuck the magnet to the bolt on top of my mirror bracket. The wire is oh so thin, however. Don't want to pinch it.

    SXM app on smartphone, stream to a bluetooth speaker. And an external battery to charge off of halfway through the day.

    XM always had the cool portable stuff. The MyFi would have been good for this but I don't know if it works after the merger went through. I cancelled my sub after Anthony was fired and pay for his show now instead.

    I would get the phone app, and get a small rechargeable speaker, and a couple of charging tubes. I bring 3 tubes to work: 1 or 2 for the speaker, and 1 for the phone if I'm out past 10 hours or have had to use the gps function. Btw, Howard Stern is 50 times better!
