The 1st annual Radio Innovative Product Award Winner 2004 

Introduced in 2004, the Radio magazine Innovative Product Awards were developed to honor excellence in new product development in the radio industry.

Sign Off 

Digital music sales dominated the first half of 2005, while CD and DVD sales continue to slowly drop.

The mystery of negative towers 

While negative towers are not as frequently used in directional antenna array designs, they can still be found in use. What exactly is a negative tower, and what does it do that is so different from a normal tower?

The 1st annual Radio Innovative Product Award Winner 2004 

The Innovative Product Awards were developed to honor excellence in new product development in the radio industry. Circuitwerkes Sicon-8 was the winner in the Facility Support category.

Getting it 

While there are still many opponents to the Ibiquity system, even these people are beginning to acknowledge that the system is here and is seeing acceptance.

When disaster strikes 

Through an unprecedented cooperative effort, the two companies, normally at odds with one another as competitors, put aside everything else so that they could serve the citizens of the greater New Orleans area in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

In tune with detuning 

As cellular towers began to proliferate, the interference to broadcast antenna systems became apparent, and AM broadcasters sought redress from the FCC.

The details of EIA/TIA 222 Rev. G 

The new specification's table of contents lists 15 main topics or objectives, each of which may have as many as eight subsections.

IBOC and data 

The real return of migrating to IBOC comes down to the simple fact that it levels the playing field.

FCC to streamline allotment process 

If the FCC adopts these proposals, abuses of the system would be curtailed and the process of changing a city of license (for AM or FM stations) would be significantly simplified and improved.

The final Element 

Examine some ideas and items to look for in the budgeting and planning process as they apply to FM and AM antennas.

Clear Transmission 

The increasing interest in HD Radio among broadcasters has prompted radio transmitter manufacturers to invest heavily in the development of new products.

The Doherty linear amplifier 

When first developed, the Doherty amplifier gained a reputation for difficulty in adjustment and consistent operation. Since then, it has proven to be a stable and reliable transmitter design.

FM Radio Turns 70 

June 11, 2005 marked the 70th anniversary of the first FM radio broadcast by Edwin Armstrong. Radio magazine was there to witness the event.

Maximized data 

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

Big changes for LPFM, FM translators 

The Commission has adopted changes in its rules that will immediately benefit LPFM operators and applicants.

Installing AM IBOC 

The basic installation of an AM IBOC transmitter is similar to that for an FM IBOC installation with varying exceptions required by the different system

Advanced DAB

Applied Technology: Dielectric HDR Plus 

The most daunting task of IBOC has been how to combine the analog and digital signals in a cost-effective manner. Dielectric believes it has the answer.

IBOC's real return 

Perhaps the answer to the return on investment for IBOC lies in its ability to keep pace with the emerging services.

New rules for tower locations 

These new requirements immediately affect the contents of FCC applications for construction permits.

Find the missing link: Studio to transmitter links 

Engineers need to be concerned with the ability of an STL system to deliver multiple data streams over and above what we consider to be the station’s program audio to the transmitter site.

FM IBOC site preparation 

What steps should you take when constructing a new facility for IBOC?

Site security 

Although no amount of security can deter a determined intruder, a burglar will definitely look for an easier target rather than risk being slowed down by a facility’s defenses and be caught in the act.

The formula for success 

For it to succees, stations need to create excitement about IBOC.
