Ephraim Schwartz of Infoworld weighs in on the petition by Sirius satellite radio: Schwartz points out that Ford and General Motors are on the side of the company that wants to ban weak out-of-band signals from devices in the 2.4 GHz band. He writes about the potential for conflict: Now, I wonder what happens if the local McDonald's has Wi-Fi at its drive up and you're listening to satellite radio. All I know is, if I don't get my fries, I'm writing my congressperson! Let me remind you all of the wise words of Intersil in their filing against the Sirius petition: This level [that the petition complains about] is actually about 8 dB below the thermal noise floor. Or, heat waves make more noise than the interference level Sirius is petitioning about.
