XM Requests 30 Day Authority to Operate Repeater at PGA Events

XM filed a 30 day request today to operate a 2,000 Watt EIRP repeater at the following PGA events:

Mercedes Championships, Kapalua, HI, Jan 1-7
Sony Open in Hawaii, Honolulu, HI, Jan 8-14
Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, Palm Desert, CA, Jan 15-21
Buick Invitational, San Diego, CA, Jan 22-28

XM had previously made a 180 day request, which the FCC is yet to place on public notice. The 30 day request will cover the immediate events. Evidently, the FCC has come under the influence of the high pitch shrills by those with ulterior motives. It is unfortunate for XM and Sirius in that it increases the uncertainty of their business plans. It is entirely unfair to satellite radio.

It is noteworthy that the first two events are in Hawaii, where there is no satellite coverage...yet.
