The satellite radio in our long-term 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 is cutting in and out more frequently than is usual. Is our antenna bad or is something else at work?

    I let my free trial Sirius subscription lapse. The music programming is great but the sound quality stinks and I hate talk radio.

    Does it happen when you drive over a bump? If so, check the antenna connection. Check all connections if it's not just the sat radio that cuts out.

    My Chevy Volt did this when it was cold outside. Anything below 50 degrees or so and the radio would cut out constantly. I kept meaning to take it to the dealer to get looked at, but never found the time before my lease expired. My Spark EV doesn't seem to have a problem with cold weather at all.

    Every sat radio in every car I've ever had, has suffered from this problem. There are definite "dead spots" where the signal cuts out no matter what the conditions are. Even more frustrating, some of these dead spots for me are in elevated locations with a clear, unobstructed 360-degree view of the sky. *shakes fist*
