The wise-guy answer is....if you have 5 radios, it is $50 per household per month.
Seriously...as the owner of four units, I wish they would offer some sort of multi-radio discount...especially when all the units are activated on the same credit card.
Someone supposed that they (XM) wanted to avoid the cheaters, but it seems that cheaters will cheat no matter what.
Couldn't someone activate two DISH Network boxes (second, third, fourth units cost less, don't they?) and give one to a friend?
I recall that it was the cheaters who might have destroyed the good-old distant networks for those of us who might have actually quailfied way back before the days of locals.

That being said, you might want to investigate a portable unit like the Sony or Delphi SkyFi to use in your home/car/office. You pay the monthly fee for one tuner, but can buy several cradles. (SkyFi cradles are about $70 retail, nore htan twice that for the SOny evidently)
Eventually, our house will have two tuners and three cradles - two mobile and one in the house - since we'll never need to be in three places at once.
