Hey Folks,
Slowed down by a open Tib Fib fracture while vacationing on the east coast.
I now have time to wade in the creek.
Twice while visiting my beautiful new Grand daughter in Chicago I notice XM radio reception was not disturbed by tunnels, parking ramps, or bridges:eek:

How they do that??
Translator? deferential?
Any underpass, heavy canopy of trees or group of buildings blocking line of sight of the Southern horizon fries my signal

Is this common in major metropolises??
