I have a chronic problem with Sirius signal degradation and unending Бacquiring signalБ display and it always occurs between 0100 and 0300 AM Eastern time.


WhatБs going on? Are Sirius engineers tweaking the satellite when they think fewer people are listening? Are they trying to update software that will put older, but still working receivers out of business? When I complained to Sirius, I was offered a brand new radio with all the trimmings for only $10 net cost. This to replace a radio thatБs only 6 years old. Since itБs solid state, the presumption is that, unless I put it into a blender, itБll continue to work just fine.


I donБt trust Sirius. Are they churning the system to make perfectly good receivers obsolete? The fact that the problem occurs only between 0100 and 0300 AM Eastern time convinces me that itБs not my equipment, but SiriusБs equipment or SiriusБs finagling. I'm in southwest Missouri and have an unobstructed view of the sky. My antenna is linked to a home dock, neither of which moves in the wee small hours of the morning. In other words, my system works fine 23. 5 hours a day, but, come 0100 AM Eastern time, I can expect to get a garbled and/or silent signal sometime in the coming 120 minutes, which garbled and/or silent signal rarely lasts more than 30 minutes.


My place isn't haunted. I'm not plagued by neighbors' kids playing pranks or wild animals exploring, particularly given the time of day. Does Sirius lend its satellite to NSA to do God knows what for half an hour every morning? The only variable I can honestly say does occur is the temperature. Is it possible that, when the temperature dips to its lowest of lows in the wee small hours, it affects my antenna's reception? I'm not talking Kelvin's absolute zero, but it does get cold!
