    Satellite FM transmitter has static but I have no way to direct connect to the radio

    I have a problem with static because there are local stations on or around all Sirius bands and no way to connect my plug and play satellite radio directly into my receiver. Any alternative solutions are appreciated.

    You can plug directly into the FM antenna wire with a FM direct adapter. You'll wind up with much better quality audio than you currently have with the FM transmitter (and no static).

    There should be a way to unplug the antenna wire near the antenna and also in the back of the radio. If you are handy enough to get at the back of your radio, its as simple as plugging it in.

    Thanks! Your reply gives me hope! I have an older Buick with the antenna in the windshield. Is that the FM antenna you refer to or the magnetic Sirius antenna that needs to be spliced to the FM adapter? The radio is a bear to get to but I suppose I could take the car to an electronic/audio shop.

    Yes, I am referring to the car's FM antenna. That antenna plugs into the back of your radio. All you have to do is unplug that antenna, plug it into the adapter, and then plug the adapter into the back of the radio (no "splicing"). You will then have a hard line to plug into the back if your plug and play radio. Run that line out a vent or under the dash and up to wherever your satellite radio is located.
