Sirius Weighs In on FCC Compliance

May 31, 2006

Satellite Standard Group is keeping you up to speed with satellite radio events.

Today, David Frear of Sirius Satellite Radio spoke at Bernstein Conference. Most of the presentation was as expected, but there was some information regarding FCC compliance.

In answer to an analyst question Frear stated:

1. Some manufacturers of Sirius radios did receive a letter from the FCC regarding FM modulators.

2. Those letters, along with the test data were forwarded to Sirius engineers, and then on to the FCC.

3. Some radios were found to be out of compliance.

4. Sirius engineers went to the manufacturers and ensured that the radios were made to be in compliance with the FCC

5. ALL Sirius radios being manufactured are now in full compliance with the FCC

It appears that whatever the issue was, that it has been addressed. Contrary to the assertion made by Johnathan Jacoby of Banc of America, there is no lingering issue between Sirius and the FCC regarding FM modulation. Supply of radios to retailers should not be impacted.

Perhaps these troubles will lead to more people using FM Direct Adapters
