Stock Sirius antenna with aftermarket head unit?

Can this be done? When my free subscription is up in a few months, I want a different head unit, but I'd like to keep the stock Sirius antenna if possible.

They have an SMB connection, so most decks no. You will need a tuner.

Yes, the stock Sirius antenna will work with an aftermarket radio. Although keep in mind the plug will most likely need to be modified depending on the Sirius tuner.
