Satellite Radio Mounting???

I was thinking about getting XM or Sirius for my 67 Mustang, but the antennas are so ugly.... is there any way i can mount it in the cowl vents ahead of the windshield? If not there then does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks

Don't think that will work, the XM signal on my Wifes 04 Tahoe gets lost when I pull into the garage until I clear the opened aluminum door. Go with XM, much better, and cheaper than Sirius IMO.

Yea, I think XM would be better also, but, theres still the problem of mounting the ugly antenna on a classic car... Any ideas?

Sirius has the nfl. For me that is probably the way I would go. I am debating on how to include it on my 74 caddy.

Unfortunately, your radio antenna is going to need a clear view of the sky. Signals from satellites dont like to be blocked.

I know, I work at a satellite earth station. Heavy rain will block signals from satellites. Occasionally, we need to have the trees around the station topped out because the leaves on the trees will absorb the RF we are putting out to the satellite.
