On Monday, it was reported that XM filed an application to operate a replacement repeater at Harrah's Casino Hotel. Yesterday, the WCS Coalition, on queue, filed an opposition to the application. It was the same old arguments, saying that XM had not demonstrated the need for a "high" powered repeater nor had XM stated why the need couldn't be filled with several low powered repeaters. It would seem to be a dead issue, due to the FCC's decision to defer the WCS Coalition's argument over peak versus average power. The repeater will operate at an average of 1,068 Watt EIRP, or 5,500 Watt peak EIRP. The Coalition would like to ban all new repeaters above 2,000 Watt peak EIRP. Hopefully, the FCC will dismiss this opposition as moot.
