The Gobi racks are also well known to cause this problem. I think it creates something called a Faraday Grid, but whatever, it blocks the signal. The easiest fix is to buy and install an aftermarket Sirius antenna and abandon the stock one. I think I paid like $12 for one from Monster. I located mine on the outside, above the drivers side cowl. Others have had success mounting inside the vehicle, under the center dash cover that hides the compass magnet.Would love to see pics of your rack.
