Satellite Radio In Puerto Rico

As many of you may have surmised, I have been away for a while. I still have a day job. The vast majority of my time has been spent in China over the past year or so. Anyway, this may be a bit of old news. When the merger between XM and Sirius was approved last year, one of the conditions was to bring satellite radio to Puerto Rico. In keeping with this condition, on October 27, 2008, Sirius XM filed an application to operate low powered repeaters (less than 2 KW) in Puerto Rico. These repeaters would be used to bring satellite radio to Puerto Rico, complete with repeaters to fill in the gaps. The FCC is yet to act on this application.

Twenty repeaters are currently planned as follows:

Westernbank World Plaza, 268 Munoz Rivera Avenue, San Juan, PR

Edificio Union Plaza, Avenue Ponce De Leon #416, San Juan, PR

Las Caramelitas, Avenue Ponce De Leon, San Juan, PR

Hoorah! It's official, the FCC has granted authority to operate repeaters in Puerto Rico.

The popular comment layout is common, so it is easily recognized scanning to post a comment. If the comment section is in a different format, then I am going to spend more time trying to decipher what everything means.

Does anyone know if xm will work in puerto rico or will this apply only to sirius?

I'm a little confused by satellite radio technology. Is it the better one?

I have a 2013 Hyundai Accent with a factory installed XM radio. I called XM, gave them the radio ID and activated a 2 month trial but couldn't receive the signal! I called again and they told me that XM is not available in Puerto Rico! Why didn't they tell me that when they activated my trial, they knew I was in P.R., I was even told to check with my dealer!!!
