What’s a Radio ID and where can I find it?

Each satellite radio has its very own ID number, referred to as a Radio ID. (You may also see it referred to as an ESN number or SID.)

You’ll need your Radio ID number to register and log into your account, check the details of your trial subscription, activate a trial (if not already active), refresh your radio and more. We recommend you write it down and keep it handy for reference.

You can easily locate your Radio ID in one of the following ways:

  • For most radios, the Radio ID will display when you tune to Channel 0.
  • If that doesn’t happen, use the “Menu” function of your radio to locate it.
  • Your Radio ID is also printed on the letter included with the Welcome Kit we’ve sent you.
