FCC hurting business

Share Button

DailyTech just wrote a pretty negative article Sirius Pulls Some Radios Due to FCC Probe about how the FCC ruling that some of the FM transmitters are too strong on SIRIUS radios has caused SIRIUS to stop shipping a bunch of radios. I have three comments:

1. The picture that DailyTech attached to the article is of the Sportster4 (SP4-TK1) one of the few sirius radios that has a newer, weaker, FM transmitter and is not affected by the FCCs latest decision

2. The decision has had a significant impact on our business. A lot of the better selling radios, like the Sirius S50, are not presently available, and our radio sales have slowed – I would be very surprised if this did not affect SIRIUS’ financials

3. One great solution to this problem is to use a Wired FM modulator, to hardwire your SIRIUS signal into your car – they are not hard to install, they are only $20 and the sound quality is much better
