2. Installing/Positioning the Antenna
For best reception, the supplied antenna should
be placed near a window; some repositioning may
be required to achieve optimum results. The
following guidelines are recommended:

a. In a major city, where Sirius ground repeaters
are present, you can usually place the antenna
away from a window and still achieve the
desired results.

b. You can also place the antenna outside (on the
roof structure), provided it is clear of any
overhead obstructions.
NOTE:
TERR. RF
CONNECTOR
SAT. (MAIN)
RF CONNECTOR
Because of the orbiting characteristics
of the Sirius Satellites, the strength of
the received signal may change over
time. In most cases however, the
signal should be available
continuously. If you experience a
loss of signal or audio, reposition the
antenna inside the home or outside
as necessary.
5. Installing the Shuttle on the Cradle
Place the Shuttle in the cradle so that the Shuttle
connectors are lined up; use the SAT and TERR
RF connectors as guides. Then gently press in on
the bottom of the Shuttle to engage the
connectors.

7. Mounting the Antenna
The antenna should be placed on a relatively flat
surface whenever possible. To mount the antenna:
a. Plug the antenna into the SAT. (MAIN) connector
on the back of the cradle.
b. Place the antenna at the preferred location
inside or outside the home.

f. If the antenna is mounted outside, route the
cable from the antenna position to the interior
of the home, working the cable through the
basement,under a window sill, etc.; make
adjustments and take up slack whenever
necessary.
c. Apply power to the Shuttle system as outlined
in the associated User Guide and obtain an
audio output. If no audio is heard, move the
antenna to different positions on the surface
until an audio output is heard. This is the
desired antenna position and should be
marked with masking tape or by another nonscratch method.
g. Plug the antenna cable into the SAT (MAIN)
connector on the back of the cradle.
d. After determining the optimum position, turn
off Shuttle power, disconnect the power
adapter from the wall outlet receptacle and
disconnect the antenna cable.
j. Plug the female end of the AC cable into the DC
adapter; then plug the DC Adapter jack into the
DC 12V receptacle on the cradle.
e. Plan the routing of the antenna cable to the
Shuttle RF input. Make sure you avoid any
obstructions that could crimp, kink or twist the
cable; use protective grommets wherever rough
openings are encountered.
k. Plug the other end of the AC cable into a 110volt wall receptacle; the integral power LED in
the Shuttle power button ( ) will light red.
l.
You are now ready to enjoy Sirius programming
within your home.
