Satellite radio is one of the biggest improvements in broadcasting since the introduction of FM. Satellite radio signal can be broadcasted for more than 35,000 kilometers (22,000 miles) with complete clarity and high quality sound. You will never get static interferences while listening to over 100 radio channels. The idea behind satellite radio has appeared in 1992, when the United States Federal Communications Commission granted a spectrum of the S band (the 2.3 GHz frequency) for Digital Audio Radio Service. The license to broadcast in that band was allocated to Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio in 1997. Now there are three companies that provide satellite radio in the world: Sirius and XM in Northern America and WorldSpace in Asia, Europe and Africa.

Mariah Carey would love to see her twins appear on a talent show, but her husband Nick Cannon says 'absolutely not'.
The singer gave birth to fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe on April 30 last year. Although their children are yet to celebrate their first birthday, Mariah is already hoping they follow in her footsteps and pursue a career in showbiz.
However, Nick ' who hosts TV show America's Got Talent ' wants his kids to enjoy their childhood and get an education before they consider entering the harsh world of entertainment.
"Absolutely not," Nick replied when asked if he would like to see his twins audition for America's Got Talent. "That''s my personal feeling. If you asked my wife, she would say, ''Yes! Let''s sign them up next year!''
'The thing that is great about this show is that you''re giving people who would never have an opportunity at stardom an opportunity. As a parent, and maybe because I''m a new parent, I am so protective and so sensitive and would never want anyone to judge my child."
"You catch me in ten years and my child is an amazing singer or drummer and says, ''Dad, I want to do it,'' of course I am going to support whatever they want,' he added.
Nick also opened up about his health struggles.
The presenter suffered mild kidney failure and spent time in hospital over the Christmas holidays. He was later diagnosed with autoimmune disease lupus nephritis. The 31-year-old star insists he is on the road to recovery and is feeling a lot better.
"I''m doing great," he said while promoting the new season of America's Got Talent. "At the beginning of the year there was obviously concern that I might be overworked and over tired but this year my health is 100 per cent."
