Thule Box and Sat. Radio?
 
Does a Thule Box interfere with Sirius radio?

The antenna would have to be on the roof. The tuner itself may be somewhere in the dash, but the antenna would be on the roof (probably under the same housing as the regular antenna).

That's what l always assumed but people keep mentioning it's in the dash for some reason. Gps/sat need two individual antennas I thought so that's why I believed it.

Yeah, it's got to be the tuner box, not the antenna. I've never seen any vehicle where the sat radio antenna was not mounted on the roof in some fashion. There's just too much potential for interference if it's inside the cabin. Seeing as how my Sirius reception is decent, it's either on the roof or the Jeep engineers performed some impressive antenna juju they haven't shared with anybody else.

There are two different antennas to receive satellite signals. The GPS antenna is in the dash. The Sirius antenna is on the roof. Details are in this post.
