Satellite Update - Nov. 5, 2009

The FCC did not release a list of International Bureau Policy Branch actions on satellite actions last week. There was only a single item.

From FCC Report SAT-00643 (PDF):

  • • Sirius XM Radio, Inc. requested special temporary authority (STA) to continue to operate two terrestrial repeaters in Harrisburg, Pa. for a period of 180 days.
