Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, is there an external/add-on satellite radio tuner connected to the Kenwood KDC-MP435U?

Electronics Technician: Louie, Technician replied 3 years ago
I understand."Satellite ready" would mean that it is capable of accepting connections to an add-on satellite tuner by SIRIUS/XM. The Kenwood KDC-MP435U does not have its own/built-in satellite tuner. Please see the last paragraph of p. 5 of its Owner's Manual HERE.I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, it is a design limitation; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.The Kenwood KDC-MP435U would need a Sirius Satellite Package that is sold separately similar to the set shown HERE.

thanks I can stop chasing my tail
if I change units do I have to have a special satellite antenna ?
Electronics Technician: Louie, Technician replied 3 years ago
There are not that many headunits with built-in Sirius/XM satellite tuner. And as such, almost all add-on satellite tuners comes with their own antennas. It would be something like the product shown HERE.

A Kenwood EZ-700SR may be of interest. Still, good luck and thank you too for the opportunity to be able to share the information.
