Is anyone able to listen to their Sirius radio (on their phone) while on island?

I believe you have to download the App and it's an additional $5 a month added to your current plan

Their website says only US, Puerto Rico, and some places in the Caribbean. That's why I was wondering if I'll be able to access it while on island.
Further research has turned this up (from the Sirius FAQs page:
The SiriusXM Internet Radio service is available to those at least 18 years of age in the 50 United States, the District Of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Some SiriusXM Premium Online Pricing Plans require a qualifying Satellite Radio subscription; and the SiriusXM U.S. Satellite Service is available only to those at least 18 years of age in the 48 contiguous United States and the District Of Columbia, with Sirius also available in Puerto Rico (with coverage limitations).

I have sirius radio in my car and the only place it works is in my driveway. No reception anywhere else on the island. We are on the fringe of the satellite coverage. Maybe it works over the internet but I don't know. Mine is by an antenna on the car and not over the internet. Chesterfields Restaurant has sirius radio but I'm not sure if he has a special antenna.

It would work over the internet only if you went through a VPN that would ID you as being in the USA.

I read on the Sirius site that members of the Military and other subscribers stationed, living, or working outside the USA can call and speak to a rep to get coverage in their area. Whether this is through an unlocked IP address or other means I have no clue

I, and two others, run an FCC licensed non-commercial Low Power FM station as unpaid volunteers. Three years ago we started streaming our music online and now have listeners on six of the seven continents.

I would appreciate it if someone on-island would let me know if you can successfuly listen to our stream on either or both sides of SXM.

On shoutcast or the TuneIn Radio app just search for wmjs

We also have a "listen live" link on our webpage at wmjs.org

We will be returning to SXM in the future and would like to know if we will be able to listen to our station while on island.

Thanks!

Was able to connect and listen to Captain and Tennille on both TuneIn Radio and on the web page Bill. Dutch side on the border.
