XM Satellite Radio Commences Test Program(July 12, 2001)
Last month, XM's second satellite, Roll, was formally handed over to XM by Boeing Satellite Systems and began broadcasting as part of the preparation for XM's commercial launch. The satellite, launched May 8, is performing beyond expectations, like its twin Rock. By using two powerful satellites, each with the same nationwide coverage, XM will ensure maximum signal and system reliability.
The July 2001 issue of BE Radio looks at the technology behind satellite radio and the service providers, XM and Sirius Satellite Radio.
