From FCC Report SAT-00645 [PDF]:
  • • The FCC accepted an application from Sirius XM Radio that requests special temporary authority (STA) to operate two existing terrestrial repeaters in Puerto Rico for a period of 180 days with antenna heights different from those previously authorized. Sirius XM Radio proposes to operate each repeater with an average EIRP of up to 2,000 W for use in the 2320-2332.5 MHz band allocated for the Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS). Sirius XM Radio also requested STA for 180 days to continue to operate two terrestrial SDARS repeaters at EIRP up to 800 watts average at the Delphi plant in Kokomo, Ind. using both Sirius and XM Radio frequency bands from 2320 to 2345 MHz.

From FCC Report SAT-00644 [PDF]:
  • • The FCC's International Bureau Satellite Division granted a request from Intelsat North America LLC for STA to continue operating Intelsat 706 at 54.85 degrees east longitude through Dec. 5, 2009. The Satellite Division also approved, with conditions, a request from Sirius XM Radio's to operate a terrestrial repeater in San Juan, Puerto Rico at a height six feet greater than previously authorized. The FCC approved a maximum EIRP of up to 1,000 W average and an operation period of 60 days. Note that this is a different application than the request mentioned in the previous paragraph, which was still pending.
