WCS Group Eyes Sat Radio Merger

As the pending merger between XM and Sirius drags on, another unique entity had its say about the proposed combination of satellite radio companies.

Late last week, the WCS Coalition wrote Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin about the deal. At issue for the group were suggestions that a merged entity should divest some satellite radio spectrum or lease a portion of spectrum to third party programmers.

The coalition didn't take a position on the proposed conditions. But the group asked the FCC to ensure that if a spectrum divesture condition is placed on the deal, that the effort ensures there is "reasonable coexistence" between satellite radio spectrum users and WCS spectrum holders.

In its letter, the coalition said, "Not only should the commission ensure that no divesture condition harm WCS/DARS coexistence, but it should consider specific ways in which a divesture condition can affirmatively facilitate coexistence."

The FCC is the final regulatory hurdle for the companies to complete their merger. The deal won clearance from the Justice Department's antitrust unit in March.
