Roof top carrier and satellite reception

Hey gang, this may be a silly question. I may have to pick up some cross bars to put my rooftop carrier on for our summer vacation. My rooftop carrier will definitely extend over top of the antennae mast.

Will that interfere with my satellite reception?

If heavy tree cover can block the microwave signal so will any metal carrier blocking the antenna from the sky.....FM should still work.

I was afraid of that. Never thought I would say this, but I have become quite fond of xm radio. We will be on a 13 hour drive through the mountains from Alberta through to southern BC. FM stations are few and far between on this trip. I will just have to load up a few hundred of my favorite songs on my USB, or leave some crap at home.

Thanks for the confirmation Thomcat

I get XM reception while parked in my windowless garage, so the best I can say is give it a try, if it works, great, if it doesn't, it doesn't...
