    Satellite radio install on my ski :)

    Just ran some wires off the battery, around the "cool side" of the motor, using the same brackets the factory wires use......pretty easy.

    A bunch of old mother hens on pwctoday chastized me when I even suggested doing this, but I think it came out ok...what do u think?

    I'm gonna use a 5 dollar am/fm sports radio with a pair of cheap ear phones (the kind that go in your ear) to listen to howard during my vacation (i plan on going out every nice morning) and music during the weekend. The great thing about it is it will broadcast about 50 feet in any direction to any radio.

    here's some pics.

    thought you guys might like to see it, if you have any negative comments about how I'm risky my safety by listening to music on the water, please just go back to the pwctoday thread and complain there, thanks!

    thnx...

    the reason i didnt put speakers on was because I didn't want to disturb other peeps. This model radio has a built in FM transmitter, which any FM radio can pick up...

    I also figured if I wanted to hear it while i was going I'd definitly have to have it a lil too high to hear it.

    +The honda is treating me well, it's exactly what you'd expect. definitly not the fastest (Thanks guys for letting me see what a modded RXP is like ) but definitly much better than fixing it every weekend!

    It does very well at being a Honda

    My harbor ride is about 20 mins long, if you speed, 30 if you stay legal.

    I would not be able to go out alone without howard. I'd go insane.

    That's your opinion - we all have our own opinion.

    And wackbag is a bunch of whiners

    Nice install though....how is the reception in there or do you have an external antenna?

    Hopefully someday Sirius will make a portable unit - then you could have just put it in a waterproof bag.

    im gonna just use an antenna (xm actually) it works pretty good...

    I really dont think I'll be using it while in motion much... I'm going to see how long it will run before it kills the battery tomorrow.

    The sirius portable will be out soon and then you're right, that'll be sweet!
