XM radio for the ice house and the boat

9 posts in this topic

I've been looking for something that I can move from the boat to the house without a lot of trouble and can't seem to find anything. Does anyone know of a place that might have something that would fit this bill?

Thanks, Steve

There are a few Marine grade XM and I Pod docking stations on the market now. I think I seen one in Overtons?

With the docking station you can pop from the boat to another rig, so the fish house application may be just the ticket? Secure too, take it with you, can't get ripped off.

I have an Delphi MyFi XM2GO. It transmits over an unused FM station on any radio. I use it in my boat, ice house and goes to Canada when I do. They work great.

Okay, what I've found out is I first need a car unit with FM, then something like the Dephi MyFi or Roady. So if I was going to be in Minneapolis, where would be the best place to look for something like that? I'll be coming in from the north on 35W to 694 to Hwy 100. (Going to North Memorial Hosp.)

You can get the delphi at WMart I beleive. You do not need a car radio if you get one with the FM modulator. Then any radio will pick it up like it is another radio staion. I have the XM roady 2 and I often use it with a portable radio. Just use the vex battery to power the XM radio and a battery operated portable radio to listen. If you can not find one with the fm modulator you can get separate fm modulators that connect to the XM radios earphone port and send fm signal to other radios. Best B has them.

Thanks but I want to hook it up to the 12 volt so I'm not buying batteries every time I go out.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
