Satellite radio

I was wondering the best way to install the antenna on a sirius radio for the jeep. Obviously you cant put the radio on the hard or soft top. Is there an ideal place to put it? My buddy has one for much of nothing I was thinking of buying.

Mount the antennae on the top of the roll bar beneath the top. You can by a specific mount for it, or just zip tie it.

Satellite radio waves are supposed to be able to pass through the tops, just not metal.

I stuck mine on top of my sound bar under the cloth material and it has been working great and keeps it out of the way.

Mine's on the cowl next to the HVAC air inlet. My Jeep's black and the antenna's black. Nobody's ever even noticed it's there.
