    Getting ready to start with OD, I was able to snag up a wild turn line haul spot. I want to bring my siriusxm with me in the truck. What or where are fellow slip seaters doing with there magnetic antennas?

    I've seen a few mounted on top of the mirrors. Not sure how they do it exactly. OD trucks have a bird perch mount on the right side door. I've seen a lot of guys with those mushroom antennas mounted there. What service center are you with?

    Awesome I'll have to check thst out then. Hoping to avoid buying another antenna but if I have to I will. Can't go without my satellite radio lol. I'll be pulling out of Carlisle,PA. I think they consider that one their Harrisburg terminal.

    I use the mirror mount antenna; I put in some longer bolts and use wing nuts to tighten and loosen. Have to take one side of mount completely off when removing but works well for me. Have a pair of pliers handy to give the wing nuts a little extra 'boost'; and also have extra bolts/ wing nuts stashed cuz they're easy to drop and lose.

    I use nothing. I slipseat and use the Sirius/XM smartphone app with my phone plugged into the truck's radio. It's free with your radio subscription. This way I also get live sports that aren't available on the satellite radio.

    I have seen some of the Saia guys do the same thing with the mirror mounts.
