Sirius Proposes to Test New Equipment and Services

Sirius has filed for an experimental license "to research, design and demonstrate prototype satellite radio equipment for use in its satellite digital audio radio services (“SDARS”) system and to research, design and demonstrate new services or enhancements to its existing services." Sirius would conduct experiments at its engineering labs in Vernon, NJ, and Lawrenceville, NJ.

Sirius describes the purpose as:

Sirius continuously seeks to update its technology that it uses and the services that
it offers to consumers. Thus, Sirius needs the capability to test new and prototype
equipment or service enhancements to ensure that they function correctly before
commercial production or deployment. The production of SDARS equipment and the
introduction of new services are both expensive undertakings, and Sirius needs the
capability to test its technology before expending these resources.

There aren't any clues as to what the new equipment and services might include. All we know is that it is entirely within the Sirius band.

OT: Into the Fray

We go to the ends of the world to bring you news that's important (actually, we have day jobs). Tomorrow we begin our journey into the "largest annual human migration in the world". Reports are not encouraging. It's into the fray and hope for the best. Shouldn't be too bad (famous last words); everyone is trying to get out of Shanghai, not in to it. It's the Lunar New Year in China, the biggest holiday of the year and it is when everybody goes home. Southern China is having some of the worst weather in decades, but it is also affecting other areas. Just another adventure.

If you are over that way, there is a good chance you will find us at the Big Bamboo enjoying the best cheeseburger in the world. And if any of you have favorite spots in Shanghai, let us know and we will check it out.

We will be in contact. Internet access is good, although slow at time.
