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?

yes you will loose signal almost all the time when going under object over hangs in drivethru and other object that block the signal to the sat.
