RE: [CA] SR-150 Antenna short
Zippyr37,

Q. Since the antenna does not have line of sight will it still blink twice or does that all so indicate a bad antenna?
A. Information concerning the SR150's Status LEDs may be found within Appendix A LED indications of the SR150 Installation Instructions. As indicated therein, the SR150's antenna status LED will be illuminated green and will be flashing when the SR150 senses that it has been interfaced to its antenna, but is not acquiring signal from the SiriusXM satellite ... this would be the expected status for an antenna which was not located where it has been afforded an unobstructed view of the skies overhead. However, we have since demonstrated that the SR150 will also produce the two green flash sequence when its antenna has been located where it is receiving no SiriusXM satellite signal. A problem report will be logged accordingly to report this discrepancy between the SR150 Status LED's actual vs documented performance. Until this problem has been addressed, one should not assume an antenna short if the antenna has not been located where it will have an unobstructed view of the skies overhead.
