Sat radio

Anyone having problems with satelite radio? Mine seems like it is droping the sound for a split second then comes back on. Only last for 1 or 2 notes in a song. Do not seem to be having the problem with the regular FM. Is this a problem with the unit in the truck or with the satelite provider?
Not sure if I should take to dealer to have looked at or not. I am still in my 6 month free subscription do not know if that makes any difference, woudnt think so if they are wanting me to sign up and keep the subscription

Mine does it also. I think it's just a glitch in the satellite feed. It only does it once in a while on a sporadic basis.

It should only do it if you're around tall buildings, going under overpasses, things that block the signal. But the signal is slowed and/or blocked by heavy cloud cover also.
