I’m hoping there are factual answers to this, but of course, the appropriate mods should relocate this if it makes sense to do so.
I’ve had satellite radio in my two vehicles for a number of years. There is an intersection (a Single Point Urban Interchange, to be specific) near my house that I cross over almost daily. Regardless of which car I’m in at the time, if I’m listening to satellite radio, the signal will cut out at some point while I’m crossing the intersection. Or, if I’m stopped at the light at the intersection, the signal will remain out during my entire time at the light. The same thing used to occur at a specific four-way signal in Van Nuys when I still lived in LA.
I don’t have any issues with radio, cell or bluetooth signals at the current or the prior intersection. Other than traffic signals and the associated cameras/sensors, there isn’t anything obvious overhead at either location.
So, what types of equipment and/or materials are capable of interfering with a satellite signal? I’m aware that storms can cause problems with my satellite at home, but the problem I describe here happens 100% of the time at these specific locations, regardless of weather.
