I took an old XM boombox out of storage to sell on EBAY. I plugged it in to take some pictures with the dial lighted to prove it was operational ... and it was working. The only channels missing were 100 (Howard) and playboy. But it does get O&A (unlistenable) and everything else. Love the Deep Tracks, album rock, and OTR station.
That's what? 20 months at $15 / $16 per? If I can keep this up for another 10 years maybe I'll break even on that money I lost on the stock.
