Default Sirius Radio - Improve Signal Strenght?

Curious. I had the new 2011 RX as a courtesy car for a week and never notice drop signal on the sirius when going under the traffic overpass / bridge.

In the GS350 2008, stock nav / stock sirius, everytime i drive under one, i loses signal for a brief moment. No matter how quickly I drive past it, disconnect.

Is it normal? Wasn't sure, never had SiriusXM before until the past week.

Anyway to improve the signal strength?
