Their satellite bandwidth limitations are set. Short of the FCC expanding what they can broadcast on, or SIRIUS XM buying some open frequencies, they won't be able to expand their satellite bandwidth.
Which begs the question...what happened to "hierarchical modulation"??
SIRIUS to boost satellite programming capacity - Orbitcast
So when will it actually be broadcasting the Sirius content?
When can I repoint my Sirius home antenna to the South West (since I'm in the NE) and get a consistant signal?
I point currently to the north west to catch the orbiting 3 sat cluster and constantly have drops every few hours due to tree canopy cover.
EDIT: According to ryan over at xmfan.com, it won't be operational for several months
That was my next question.
How damn long can it take to flip a switch?
Do they need to wait for the orbit to settle in or something?
