    NO, there are interferance issues between the WCS band and SDARS band. They are working together to get these issues corrected. It really does not affect SDARS a whole lot right now, but has implications for the future.

    Cell phone service through satellite technology?
    Or using SiriusXM repeaters as a data transfer mechanism, like level3 does, for instance. Or to deliver cell phone signals maybe?

    no, i think its just to demonstrate that you don't get static when listening to sirius xm and drive by a wcs transmission tower.

    i would not read too much into this IMO

    this has been drug out since 2003 and sirius asked in 2006 for just this action to be taken..not to mention the simple fact of xm/sirius has been operating with a temporary license which has a degree of risk.

    Ahhh. Still. Those repeaters could one day be reoutfitted to send other types of data streams no?

    yes they could be replaced.but based on the sdars license which contains wording that excludes extending the reach outside of their network. i think their hands are tied unless they get the wording changed
