Generally its an obstruction such as trees/bridges/tunnels. I have occasionally had it just "acquiring signal" in an open area however yes it is normal as it is not FM radio where air waves are all around it, no static for SAT it either has the signal or doesn't. Also make sure your software in the radio is up to date, one of the recent updates helps with "acquiring signal" issue if you have it often.
