Keeping Good Time 

When the HD Radio time delay between the analog and digital signals is not set properly, the resulting effect can be an annoyance to the listener. Brian Beezley studied the station in Southern California and found some disappointing results.

Comparing Digital Radio Awareness 

Even the best technology will ultimately fail if no one wants to use it.

Next Steps in Surround 

There are many facets to broadcasting surround content. Besides choosing a technology, the station's technical staff has to become appropriately educated, suitable monitoring is needed to listen to the content, and the related infrastructure has to be suitably in place.

Technology Turnaround 

The time had come for KKDA Dallas to abandon the classic U-shaped cabinetry and start completely from scratch. The challenge was that the new studio had to be in the same location as the previous, which could not be enlarged.

The Emergent Employee 

There is no doubt that radio has been changing in dramatic ways in the past few years. But these advancements in technology and radio's overall capabilities haven't just changed the way we listen to music-it has changed the way we transmit music-and a radio engineer's job is more complex and developmental than ever.

IT for Radio Engineers 

Today, many of the clunky boxes that served us so well in the past have been replaced by networked hardware and software systems, which, while providing a far more powerful and compact platform to fill the operational needs of a facility, now take the form of black-boxes and software files.

Gadgets, widgets and interfaces 

There are unique circumstances in every radio station--some physical, some due to specifically requested functionality--that cannot always be addressed by the features of the major components of the system. What becomes necessary in many cases such as these are special devices that fill in those gaps and provide the last little piece of the puzzle that makes the system complete.

Conditional Access for HD Radio 

Two main concepts embody conditional access technology: entitlement and encryption. The entitlement is an authorization; the encryption is a digital scrambling of the content.
