Preserving history 

Reader Feedback allows Radio magazine readers to share their thoughts on topics relating to broadcasting.

Digital radio? What's that? 

Radio has its work cut out for it because HD Radio is the best-kept secret.

New Products (Aug 2005) 

New products from AKG, Broadcast Tools, Omnitronix, Orban and WIT.

IBOC and data 

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

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.

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.

Field Report: Klotz Digital Aeon 

This modular audio control surface has a low profile and functions with three major components: the control surface, an electronics frame and a power supply.

Sign Off 

Portable audio entertainment comes full circle when flash memory meets the audio tube.

Field Report: Prism Sound Dscope III 

Doug Irwin put the Dscope test set through several tests of his own.

New Products (Jun 2005) 

New products from Acoustica, Audio Science, Broadcast Tools, Hush Technologies, Nagra, Neutrik, RFS Broadcast, Richard Tell Associates, Rohde and Schwarz, Sound Ideas, Studio Technologies, Sydec Audio Engineering and Tascam.

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.

Field Report: Great River Electronics MEQ-1NV 

A high-quality mic sound is important, and the use of a separate preamp is common in most installations, but the mic preamp must perform its function without unwanted coloration or distortion. We put the Great River MEQ-1NV to the test.

Sign Off 

Who were the top 10 radio station owners in regard to revenue in 2004, and how does each rate with regard to individual station revenues?

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.

New radio market definitions tested 

As expected, now the Commission has put local market rules into place, they are immediately put to the test by license applicants. Despite this, the FCC maintains that the Arbitron-based market definition will stand and that there is a heavy burden on a petitioner to show that an alternative definition is appropriate.

Field Report: Neumann BCM 705 

The BCM 705 is a dynamic microphone -- the first ever built with the Neumann name. How does it perform for on-air use?

FCC to auction 173 more FM CPs 

The Commission plans another simultaneous, multiple-round auction.

Field Report: Comrex BRIC 

On an unseasonably warm and sunny New England day, the Comrex engineering team set forth boldly to test BRIC on as many publicly available hotspots as possible.

Maximized data 

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

Field Report: Marantz PMD660 

It's small, it has XLR connectors, and it records to solid-state media. I wanted one and couldn't wait to get my hands on one.
