Insight to IBOC 21 - May 2010
The Radio magazine DAB Answer series continues with the 21st installment, which looks at the technology behind the Myat Lo-Loss Solution, the HD Radio installation at Mississippi Public Radio and a current count of station in the HD Radio rollout.
Increasing the IBOC digital sidebands from -20dBc to -10dBc presents more challenges for broadcasters wanting to transmit from one antenna.
In June 2009, Mississippi Public Broadcasting culminated a multiyear effort and inaugurated two-channel HD Radio transmission to all eight of its Class C FM analog stations.
The HD Radio rollout slowly continues. We compare the state-by-state station counts from 2006 to 2010.
Periodically, we have tracked the progress of the HD Radio rollout by state. Through 2008, the number of stations adding HD Radio saw a steady increase.
