Yes Octane 20. I only pay $7 a month I think my dad has it also. I love it, It was kind of an inpluse buy, Someone stole my ipod and I was tired of paying for songs. But im going to Denver next week so I will get to enjoy it even more on the 12 hour drive each way lol.

sirius is the best for road trips! i love it when i travel. Octane 20 and Kayla in the afternoons! its the best. Jason Ellison in the mornings isnt too bad.

i believe kayla announced today she is leaving octane. Didnt catch were she is going. I list to ellismates show in the afternoons on faction, its a great show.

I think the sirius install book says not to hardwire the setup. Ive got the sportster 4 in a boombox at work, and bought a reciever from bill to hook straight up to my pioneer in the truck.
