I know that the DOJ decided against blocking the merger over a month ago, but I haven't heard anything about the FFC having a decision on the merger. I thought that was necessary to go ahead.

They said they'd have an announcement by the end of april, did I miss it or something?

They are still mulling it over. The old fashioned radio corporations - Clear Channel and such - have alot of pull in Washington and would love to see this tied up until Sirius and XM go broke.

according to the Washington Post this weekend a decision may be near---possibly by the end of June.
I never cared for all the signatures that insult posters with other points of view.

The problem is the FCC needs to find a way around their own rules that prohibit the transfer of licenses between the 2 Sat radio companies.
