FCC Grants 3 New Authories to XM and Sirius

The FCC cleared out some very old applications today for both XM and Sirius. These 3 applications date back to 2005.

Both XM and Sirius were granted a 180 day authority each to operate an additional 5,000 in-store low power signal boosters (< 100 micro Watt).

In addition, XM was granted another 180 day authority to operate 5,000 indoor low power signal boosters manufactured by Translight Video Systems, Inc. This may actually have some significance. The signal boosters are requested for "stores and other establishments". XM will maintain ownership of these boosters, so they are not for sale. We suspect that they will be used in such places as restaurants, gyms, etc.
