It's one of those Monday's for XM. It submitted a 30 day application to operate a very low powered repeater at the Sturgis Bike Rally in Rapid City, South Dakota, from August 6-12, 2007. XM had to withdraw the application and resubmit it again. Apparently, the original application had errors.
The application is for one 0.5 Watt average EIRP repeater for operation at the Rushmore Civic Center. In this case, a mini repeater located in the Civic Center containing the same receiver, transcoder, and upconverter of a terrestial repeater will receive the XM signal from the east coast satellite. It will transmit the signal via coax directly to a very low powered repeaters, where the signal will be amplified and re-transmitted.
We don't recall XM being there before at the bike rally. Perhaps this is a new venture for XM.
