What is Satellite Radio?

Satellite Radio – Its here! Satellite radio is a brand new service being offered by two companies, XM Satellite Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio. Both firms are providing over 100 channels of streaming music and amusement. Top quality sound is achieved via using satellites. Satellite radio has been commercial free and free from regulations by federal committees. The hopeless, is now possible, hearing the exact same radio station across North America as well as from coast to coast. All made possible by XM satellite radio and Sirius satellite radio.

Sirius Satellite Radio and xM Satellite Radio have designed satellite broadcast systems. A landmark of the success is how satellite radio signals which are offered across America and into Mexico and Canada. Rock and Roll – No its not a genre any more! XM Satellite Radio has two satellites named Rock and Roll which remain in parallel geostationary orbit to supply radio coverage throughout America. Sirius Satellite Radio has decided to use three satellites in an inclined elliptical orbit. This arrangement provides 16 hours per satellite of signal, which gives a great redundancy if any satellite should happen to fail. Playing it smart, Sirius and XM both have spare satellites, which may be called on in a moments notice if necessary.

Sirius satellite radio and xM satellite radio have Earth based broadcast stations that are used to send information up to the satellites, which is then dispersed through out the world. Sirius and XM both have disk jockeys that manage, create and program music that is subsequently sent up to the satellites. The info is subsequently taken in by the satellites and sent through a rebroadcast of the streams to earth. The Significant advantage of this is that, unlike earth-based radio stations whose signals reach listeners 150 miles away, satellite radio signals have a tremendous reach, and are receivable anywhere within the continental United States and hundreds of miles in every single direction of the edges. Satellite Radio is growing to be a world wide network and offerings are growing around the planet. Sirius satellite radio and xM satellite radio are making it happen!

Just How can Satellite Radio Work: A receiver decodes and plays with the received signals via an antenna. At first, some automobiles have used a tuner that takes the antenna signals and passes them to a satellite radio-ready radio for playing. Advertising the theory has grown from the vehicle and into the home, home kits for satellite radio use direct RCA inputs for home theater and conventional stereo systems. An increasing variety of options is happening and each firm is developing a comprehensive range of products for consumers. Already we’re seeing receivers for automobile-only, boom boxes, computer- and portables to be used in house as well as auto settings.
