Delphi XM SKYFi Marine Kit Set-up The Delphi XM SKYFi Marine Kit is designed for XM radio reception on recreational marine craft such as fishing boats, sport boats, yachts, and sailboats. Your Delphi XM SKYFi Marine Kit contains the following components: Cradle Marine mount with 1-1/2"...
XM Marine Antenna Installation The XM Marine Antenna is easy to install on most boats using the following steps: Caution: Installation of the XM Marine Antenna may require special tools as well as knowledge of marine mechanical procedures. If you are not comfortable with or are unsure of these procedures, please seek the services of a professional.
Caution: Do not cut the antenna cable and attempt to splice it or attach alternative connectors or cable. The cable and connectors used in your Delphi XM SKYFi Marine Kit are specially chosen and attached at the factory to ensure they will work with XM’s unique fre- quency band.
Positioning and pre-application • Select a location that is not enclosed or surrounded by metal that may interfere with reception. If placing the antenna on a metal fly bridge, make sure the antenna protrudes at least 5" above the bridge’s top edge.

Route the antenna cable through the antenna extension (if used) and out through the access hole on the side of the mounting bracket.

Use the four stainless machine screws provided to attach the mount to the back of the splash-proof case (see figure 8).
