As far as a brand, I don't know if there is a waterproof satellite radio. I bought a cheap one off eBay (an XM Roady), took it apart, and lacquered the circuit board to waterproof it as best I could. It won't take direct rain into it, but will certainly take moisture with no problem.

I too got a cheap Ebay used roady. I just keep it mounted on my front brake resovior cover. I have a simple sandwitch baggie on it and rubber band to keep the water out. The opening of the baggie is down. I've had it for 2 yrs with no problems.
