    What radio?

    I'm looking to get a satellite radio for my John Deere X595 garden tractor. I have a heavy duty FM/AM casette radio that has a speaker and a head phone jacket. The radio is the manually tuning type that has a knob to tune the different radio stations. I was looking at getting the Stratus 5 receiver. I have a 12v plug to use already on my tractor. My main use would be to listen to the NASCAR races while I'm mowing so I would be using the head phones. I'm new to the satellite radios but when trying to decide which radio I wanted, I read some negative comments regarding the installations. Any information would be greatly appricated.

    My suggestion would be to get a refurbished Stiletto 10. An Stiletto 10 is a portable unit so there would be no installation issues. The antenna is in the headphones. You definitely want to replace the headphones with the Stiletto 2 headphones (about $35.00). Sirius has reconditioned Stiletto 10 for $49.00

    The only issue with the Stiletto 10 is the headphone antenna is not as good as a standard antenna so if you are going under trees you might get more drop outs.

    Plus the M!rge comes with the cassette adapter so would not have to buy that separately.
