Helpful Expert Reply:

The Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier and Load Assist w/ Tie-Downs - Rear Loading - Clamp On # MPG113MD will allow you to mount the carrier to one side of your vehicle to avoid the antenna. When your kayak is loaded, the height of the rack and mount as well as the curve of your kayak should easily clear a Satellite XM radio antenna or at lease be able to avoid contact with it on your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon. The load straps have padded buckles to prevent any scratching and can be adjusted away from contact with the vehicle. The bow and stern tie downs do not have any edges or pieces that would cause any cosmetic issues either. This is a versatile system that will work very well for your application.
