    Question Article on Satelite Radios

    In the last couple months I read an article on Satelite Radio hook-up on motorcycles. I can not find the article nor remember where I read about the set up. The writer mentioned using a Grundig portable radio (but which one?) and running an ear phone to listen with.
    Has anybody else seen this article?
    or know which model Grundig was employed.

    Hi,

    I read that article also. It was in the June 2004 BMW Owners News publication. The title was "Five Hundred Miles of Bluegrass Music..." by Roger Wiles. The shortwave radio he recommended was a Grundig YachtBoy 400PE, though he said that other units will work. What is important, according to Wiles, is that the unit have a speaker and not just a headphone outlet and that it be powered by at least 6 AA batteries.

    If you want more information from this article let me know.

    Bob

    Article

    I looked through the last couple months of MOA and I'll be darned if I totally missed that article.
    Now that you told me the name of the article I remembered where I read it.

    Thanks for the reminder

    You may also want to look at Motorcycle Consumer news, last year they had a few articles. I can go in search of if you need more information.

    I am headed down to CycleGadgets this afternoon to pickup my XM mounting stuff. After 5,000+ miles with just the CD/MP3 player I really miss it.

    Disclaimer: I have no financial interest in CycleGadgets.com, they are a good company that treats me good.

    Plus they were nice enough to bring back some stuff from the National for me.

    Sat Radios

    Unfortunately you won't find the Sat radio article in the table of contents of the June MOA ON, as the TOC was screwed up. Go to the back third of the mag and look for the bluegrass article, and you'll find it.

    No need to apoligize for mentioning these guys. They're good people for sure! Nothing wrong with CycleGadgets.
    Luck favors those who are prepared.
