FCC Grants XM's Request to Operate a Repeater at PGA Events

After the PGA Tour intervened on XM's behalf, the FCC granted XM authority to operate a repeater at the PGA events for the next 180 days. This is great news for XM. The WCS Coalition has had this bottled up at the FCC since November 14, 2006. It's a major victory for XM. The grant has not yet been made publicly available, so we don't know if any restrictions were applied.

It was a very positive letter that the PGA Tour sent to the FCC on XM's behalf. It was good to see XM's partner step up to the plate.

It is of interest to note that Nate Davis has been meeting directly with the FCC lately.
