Steady growth for digital audio 

While terrestrial radio continues to develop and market a digital transmission system, other digital audio services are competing for the same listeners.

Better late than never 

While the reasons for establishing the HD Digital Radio Alliance are valid, the Alliance should have been launched at least two years ago when the first digital receiver was sold.

Effective surround monitoring 

The topic of surround sound has grow from a small topic to one of prominence at radio and audio engineering conferences.

The current view 

The various flavors of IBOC were common topics at the recent fall conventions. While many choose to deny it, the HD Radio rollout is here.

Notes on NRSC-5 and IBOC 

When the FCC asked for comments on NRSC-5, we asked readers to share their thoughts with us also. The response was overwhelming.

One step closer 

Let NRSC-5 determine the basic operation of the system, which it has done. The added features and enhancements are needed, but they can wait until the next standards-setting announcement.

Maximized data 

Data networks have extended beyond basic bit shuffling. They now have support applications for nearly every function of the station.

PADding the truth 

One obstacle in displaying PAD from an automation system is that the information entered into the system may not have been keyed in a form that is suitable for the public.

The extra bits in IBOC 

Data has always been a part of the IBOC plan, but it is just being recognized for its current and future capabilities.

Open Mic 

We asked two industry professionals about their station's data capabilities. Read what they said.
