Car Satellite Radio
The car satellite radio is the next generation in radio entertainment. It is powered by today's technological advances so as to bring the unique flavor of radio entertainment up to speed and more appealing to the new generation.
Anybody who has ever driven or ridden a car knows that, whether in daily driving or long driving trips to wherever, the car radio is a central part of the experience. Unfortunately, so is static, lost signals and, compared to the digital age of audio, sub par auditory quality.
Fortunately, the advent of the car satellite radio has sought to right these wrongs. With car satellite radio, static is no longer the issue. So it will no longer be the case that when your driving through the rain, crackles and hisses on your car radio seem more the norm than the actual programming you are listening to. You won't be losing your radio signal every time you drive under a tunnel either. Audio quality will also be vastly better than regular radio when you are using car satellite radio. Listening to your favorite radio station will be just like listening to your iPod, only what you will be hearing will be real time. Now you can hear the latest hits, the daily top twenty and even the news in full digital glory.
So how does car satellite radio work? Well, for one thing, it is not magic and it will require some upgrading of your existing car radio setup in order to work. But that's getting too far ahead. Basically, a car satellite radio receives transmissions from a satellite to a special receiving unit on your car. The programs transmitted through satellite come directly from the radio station's studio where the program is recorded digitally. Digital recording assures that the transmission contains more data and is thus, higher quality recordings. These recordings are what is encoded and transmitted to the satellite which, in turn distributes the signal to car satellite radio subscribers.
Subscribers? That's right, you will need a subscription in order to get a car satellite radio program running. That and a couple of other details. You will also need a special radio receiver and an antenna. The common car radio is not equipped to receive a satellite radio broadcast, let alone decode it to a human listening format. The main purpose of the receiver and the antenna is so that you can receive and listen to your favorite satellite car radio program.
And then there is the subscription. A car satellite radio usually works off a subscription service from a satellite radio provider. At present, there are two major satellite radio providers in the US. These are Sirius and XM. One satellite radio has a more global span of service. This is WorldSpace which offers car satellite radio programming to several continents such as Europe, Asia, South America and Africa.
So, if you want to get a taste of the new generation of car radio listening, get a car satellite radio service and get the latest and the greatest of easy radio listening in your car.
