Well, I guess that was a bit strong in retrospect. The fact that it took 10 years to get close to my average cost per share had something to do with it.
Another thing that got my goat was I was with Sirius before the merger (and had 2 radios) and had hoped to turn on the XM in my truck as a second radio and get rid of the contraption I was using to feed the signal into the truck antenna. No such luck. As far as I know, even though they are now merged, the XM part of the company STILL does not talk to the Sirius part of the company. I had to have two FULL paid subscriptions to use the XM in the truck. When I got the camper, it had XM SkyFi. So I tried to cancel the remainder of my 3 year contract with Sirius and get a "store credit" added to my new XM contract. Sorry, no soap. So I lost a year of service to a relative when I gave them my radios. Now I just have the truck and I share the SkyFi with the wife's car. We pull it and reinstall it in the camper when we go.
I do use XM a lot. While expensive, I like the financial channels and the ability to listen to what I like, when I like, wherever I am. The SkyFi has a "read ahead" function that allows you to not lose signal when you go under overpasses (just don't stop there).
