DRM+, DAB may be compatible with Band III, WKSU first with HD-4, CC offers commercial-free iHeart Radio, fur flies over IBOC increase, and Clyburn says Channels 5 and 6 could work for radio.
The symposium outlined field trial data with DRM+ in band III including mobile reception performance, possible protection ratios for DRM+/DAB, and a preliminary framework for moving forward with an interoperable digital radio environment.
WKSU HD-4, the station's latest digital content addition, offers continuous news and information programming.
Clear Channel now offers content on iHeart Radio for Sean Hannity, Dr. Laura, Jim Rome and Bob & Tom.
IBOC Across America
There are 98 stations in The Buckeye State broadcasting 170 HD Radio channels.
Three parties asking the FCC to review or reconsider its approval of a 6dB increase fired back last week after iBiquity, the NAB, and NPR weighed in.
Eye on IBOC
Clyburn stopped short of advocating immediate reallocation of those channels, saying instead that the Commission needs to see where AM, expanded NCE FM, and LPFM radio broadcast services fit in as the government re-examines how it uses spectrum.
