Hi Everyone,

Like the title says does anyone have this issue or know what to do to fix it.

My wife has a 2019 Ford Flex w/sirius and she doesn't have any issues going past the cell towers.

Would you know if installing an antenna from a 2019 Taurus would solve the problem.

Lately I have connected an ipod to listen to music and it works fine.

Thanks,

Frank

I know there is an issue with some radios and T-mobile signals on towers. They bleed into that part of the spectrum but some cars antennas do it and some don't. Didn't know it was an isse in these cars but I have heard of it in some F-150s. I am not sure an antenna swap will cure it. Probably a different year or model receiver might have a slight difference enough to work. Don't know if that means a different year SHO receiver or what as I don't know which models have this issue or are clear. Is the Flex you know that works compatible with SHO system??

Hi Luigisho,

Good question, I think the Flex parts are the same, as the Flex seems to me to be built from the same parts.

Thank you,
Frank
