Tools for installing and maintaining an HD Radio system 

Ibiquity continues to develop the tools and resources available to stations adopting HD Radio technology. They recently released four white papers that cover networking assessments for HD Radio, which provide useful information to stations making the HD Radio transition.

Implementing Surround 

When WGUC initially made the transition to HD Radio in 2003 it was looking forward to the added benefits it would bring, such as the ability to broadcast 5.1 surround sound. The station is now transmitting surround broadcasts whenever possible.

XM Launches XM-4 Satellite 

XM Satellite Radio successfully launched its XM-4 satellite.

HD Radio Hits 1,000 Station Mark 

WIYY-FM 97.9 (98 Rock) in Baltimore carries the official distinction of being the 1,000th station to broadcast with HD Radio technology.

Ibiquity Offers HD Radio Rebate Program 

A new HD Radio holiday rebate program from Ibiquity will provide as much as a $50 rebate on certain HD Radio receivers.

What do consumers know? 

It is encouraging to hear that more receivers are becoming available, although many of them will not be ready for the upcoming holiday season.

Continental Lensa Signs HD Radio License Agreement 

Continental Lensa is the first licensed HD Radio broadcast equipment manufacturer outside of North America.

Ibiquity Offers Promotional Radios to Stations 

HD Radio broadcasters across the country will begin new promotions this winter by giving away thousands of new radios.

Colorado Symphony Orchestra Opens Season with Live 5.1 Surround Sound Broadcast 

KVOD, Denver, will broadcast the Colorado Symphony Orchestra's 2006-2007 Masterworks season opening program on Sept. 16 in 5.1 surround sound, using Neural Audio's 5.1 technology for analog and HD Radio.

Sirius Files with FCC for Additional Satellite 

Sirius Satellite Radio has filed an application for authority to launch and operate an additional satellite to enhance its services. The new satellite is being referred to as Sirius FM-5. It would be placed into a geostationary orbit.

DRM Shows New Receivers at IBC 

The latest DRM-capable, multi-standard consumer products will arrive at the DRM booth at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam.

A report card on HD Radio 

The last time I conducted my field study on HD Radio in the stores was in the August 2005 issue. Unfortunately, not much has changed.

Sample and Hold 

While the two satellite radio providers are expected to draw 15 million listeners by the end of 2007, HD Radio is not expected to exceed that number until sometime after 2010.

The next step in HD Radio 

A year ago the coming killer app for HD Radio was going to be surround--but not much has happened on that front. However, HD Radio multicast has come into it's own since then.

Transmission precorrection 

One of the great ironies in broadcast engineering is that we all grew accustomed to generating large of amounts of linearly modulated RF with amplifiers

The task of going digital 

Is it possible to install HD Radio with a multicast signal in just 45 days?

Field Report: Audio Design Associates HD-Pro 

Radio stations finally have an HD Radio monitor that can be mounted in a rack to interface with the professional equipment within a radio station.

More to digital radio 

Digital radio isn't limited to IBOC and HD Radio. Satellite and Internet radio are part of it too, but there is still more to digital radio.

Insight to IBOC 7 - May 2006 

Part of the Radio magazine DAB Answer Series, the seventh installment of this recurring supplement provides a primer on the HD Radio system, which includes an overview of the components within. It also details the NPR Labs reception test of the Boston Acoustics Recepter HD radio receiver, and an interview with Gary Kline, the chairman of the HD Digital Radio Alliance Engineering Cooperative.

Better Recepter reception 

In February, NPR Labs studied reports of reception difficulties with the Boston Acoustics Recepter HD Radio receiver.

The HD Radio System 

If you are relative newcomer to Ibiquity's HD Radio technology, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the alien hardware topology and a long list of acronyms.

Open Mic: Gary Kline 

At the end of January, the HD Digital Radio Alliance formed the Engineering Cooperative to assist the engineering community within the group's partners
