>>I haven't read the article, but FCC Chairman Kevin Martin has
previously stated that any merger between the two satcasters would be
struck down by the agency. I'm sure the two services would love to
merge, since satellite radio is not experiencing the rapid growth it
once was, but it's not going to happen.<<
Only problem is, that's not what he said. He said that *under present
FCC rules* the merger would not occur. Rules can be altered or waived
upon application and Commission approval.
