Both XM and SIRIUS are also installing terrestial repeaters to supplement
the bird droppings in urban areas with lots of skyscrapers.  

However, this still doesn't prevent signal dropouts when you're going
underneath a wide overpass, unlike local FM radio which for some reason
you don't lose anywhere, except when you're going through a deep, long
tunnel (at least that's been my experience -- immaculate reception of
local FM stations in a car).
