FCC May Be Scrutinizing the Re-Certified StarMate

It appears that the FCC may be scrutinizing the newly granted re-certification for the StarMate radios. It's hard to make out exactly what is happening, but the email below was issued exactly one month after the after the radio was re-certified. The FCC appears to be asking for the latest documentation and they indicate that there will be furhter processing. Sirius may not be out of the woods yet with the StarMate certifications as Sirius' management has indicated.

It may be nothing. It may be a sign of things to come. It doesn't appear to me that WNC used the proper test procedure. The FCC seemed to be clear. If a leaky coax is used for the transmission of the FM signal, in situ testing is required for three representative vehicles: small, median, and large. The test report does not indicate that this testing took place. We shall see.
