    But theres that little issue of promising the FCC that no radios would become obsolete. Any kind of satellite deal would have to come years down the road.

    If this info is credible, I would think that Echo buying the bonds would likely end up as payment for a couple of satellites. relieving the debt and increasing cash flow possibilities.

    Did read however, a comment by a poster to the 1st article, mentioned that specs on XM satellites stated that bandwidth was not compatable?

    Both XM's and Sirius' satellites are limited to their specific portion of the spectrum that they are licensed for.

    That whole post is mindless speculation. XM's satellites cannot be used for anything other than S band broadcasting.

    Mobile video can be transmitted via S-band - correct? This post may very well be wishful thinking, but it may be plausible. Selling two hot-spare satellites to Echostar may be risky, but it could be just the ticket for survival. I'd compare it to selling a kidney...
