I steered the sales people at a couple of local electronics dealers to terrestrial, digital receivers without using the terms IBOC, HD Radio or the dreaded high-definition radio and was told the that the receivers did not exist, that stores had head units but not the receiver unit or that the store had no plans to carry these units.
Perhaps the answer to the return on investment for IBOC lies in its ability to keep pace with the emerging services.
