Sirius Requests Authority to Operate Signal Boosters at Annual Meeting For Demonstration

Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. (“Sirius”), pursuant to 47 C.F.R. § 25.120, hereby requests Special Temporary Authority (“STA”) to operate in its licensed frequency band (2320-2332.5 MHz) a signal booster with an EIRP of 0.0001 watts identical to boosters that have previously been approved for use in retail stores. This signal booster will be utilized at Sirius’ 2007 Stockholders Meeting on May 24, 2007 and Sirius requests authorization to operate the booster for four days, from May 21 through May 24, 2007, to allow for set-up and testing.

The booster will be used by Sirius for demonstrations at its stockholder meeting and ensure consistent service during the meeting at the Equitable Center in New York, NY. Due to blockage from walls and ceilings, quality reception of SDARS satellite signals inside the Equitable Center may be impeded because receivers may not have line-of-sight views to receive Sirius’ signal. The signal booster will ensure that demonstrations can be carried out without technical difficulties. Accordingly, grant of the requested STA to use this booster for a limited period will serve the public interest.
