Our take on the SIRIUS SHA1

by James Ralston

This antenna ensures that you get the best possible SIRIUS Satellite Radio reception for your home receiver or plug-and-play radio. The indoor antennas included with these radios can't always do the job.

You can use the supplied bracket to mount this all-weather antenna on an exterior wall, your roof, or your boat's mast. It comes with a 30' cable that's detachable for easy routing during installation and hookup. You can get an optional 50' indoor/outdoor extension cable if you need to reach a more remote mounting location.

Outdoor Antenna: This is a high-performance outdoor antenna, specifically designed to receive signals from the SIRIUS satellites and terrestrial (ground) transmitters when mounted outdoors on a home or other building. The antenna's coaxial output is a threaded female SMA connector.

Cable: The included 30' coaxial cable has a threaded male SMA connector on one end (to connect to the antenna) and a female SMB Plug on the other (to connect to the tuner). The antenna is not compatible with tuners having an F-Type antenna input.

System Requirements: In addition to the included SIRIUS Satellite Radio antenna, you must have a SIRIUS tuner and subscription to SIRIUS Satellite Radio to receive SIRIUS programming.

Mounting Options: There are three possible mounting options for the outdoor antenna:

  • Wall Mount: mount the antenna base directly on the side of your home or other building
  • Roof Mount: mount the antenna base on the roof of your home or other building
  • Mast Mount: mount the antenna on a mast or pole, such as an existing satellite TV dish mast, an existing TV antenna mast, or another pole not exceeding 2 inches in diameter

Adjusting and Aiming the Antenna: The pod portion of the antenna (where the SIRIUS log is printed) needs to be adjusted and aimed so that it is level and horizontal to the sky. Both the Pod and Arm are adjustable and lock into place with an adjustment screw that can be tightened or loosened.

Tools Required: A Phillips-type screw driver and a 3/8 inch wrench is needed for installation. Depending upon the type of installation, a power drill with a 3/32 inch drill bit may also be required.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Exactly what is needed for home installations. The smaller portable antennas just don't hold up outdoors, have a smaller feedline, and are difficult to mount outdoors. This antenna is easy to mount, has a thicker stronger feedline, and has a weather boot to keep moisture out of the connection at the antenna. It worked great the first time and I've never had a stronger signal strength. It is small and unobtrusive. I will likely buy a second one for my basement installation.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
My only complaint is that the cord should be longer, but if you get the extension cord then you pretty much can install this anywhere and have your gambit of installation options. Other than that it's a great unit. Simply hang it, plug it in and it works right out of the box. You don't even have to aim it, just make sure that it has a clean line of sight to the sky above (like the manual says). I highly recomment this product.
