XM Satellite Radio marine antenna
Our take on the Terk XMARINE by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
XM Satellite Radio increases the quality of your boating time with over 170 channels of quality programming. Terk designed the high-performance XMARINE marine antenna to provide crystal-clear XM Radio reception on the water.
The antenna will withstand extreme environmental conditions its sealed housing is impervious to damage from salt water or bad weather. The antenna installs using the standard marine mounting bracket, and the 25' cable connects to any XM tuner with a single antenna input.
Important Note: You must subscribe to XM Satellite Radio to receive the satellite radio signal. XM satellite radio has an offshore range of at least 100 miles (or more, depending on your location) off the coast of the lower 48 states; service is not available in Alaska or Hawaii.

Why did you buy this?
Good name brand. Just purchased a class c motorhome and need a SiriusXM antenna that will work on it. It's going to be mounted on a fiberglass roof so I went for a marine antenna ( no metal ground plane). Of course you have the famous Crutchfield techsupport [ RANDALL Sep 06, 2018 ]
Smaller size perfect for my application [ DOUGLAS A Jan 04, 2017 ]
I chose it because it was basically the only option Crutchfield offered for what I needed. It was cheaper in several other places on the web but I do appreciate the support available from Crutchfield. [ Melvin Nov 10, 2016 ]
