Field Report: Day Sequerra M2.2R 

Day Sequerra has updated its M2.0 HD modulation monitor, adding some nice and very useful features. I first reviewed the original M2.0 in Radio magazine in May 2006, and the new M2.2R model is an attractive piece of test equipment that will likely go in your facility where it can be seen by you and others.

Digital Audio Testing 

With analog, engineers know how to measure levels, frequency response and distortion to gauge the audio performance. Unfortunately, digital audio changes all this.

Field Report: Whirlwind AES Qbox 

When a station changes to AES3 or S/PDIF digital audio, the availability of easy-to-use, rugged and portable test equipment declines greatly.

Field Report: Audemat-Aztec Goldeneagle FM/HD 

With HD Radio, stations at minimum need to monitor the main channel audio. But there's also multicasting, PAD and funny initials like DAAI and QI that tell volumes about the signal. The big question is how to acquire all of that data.

Sign Off 

The computer hard drive is 50 years old this month. Take a look at the IBM RAMAC, which held 5MB of data and was the size of a refrigerator.

Field Report: Day Sequerra M2.0 

Being able to go back and forth easily between different HD Radio streams is educational in terms of processing--and being able to quickly study your competition's HD Radio audio, now that's what radio engineering is all about.

Trends in Test Equipment 

If you had the opportunity to equip yourself anew for the year, which pieces of equipment would make your core list?

Field Report: Cold Heat Soldering Tool 

You have seen the TV spots for the latest and greatest products that we just can't live without. Recently there was one that caught the eye of our reviewer. It might have caught your eye as well.

Proving Performance: Test and measurement 

While the basic skills of evaluating system performance are still in place, the tools and the methods used today are changing significantly. Digital signals require analog tools, but you can't neglect the analog elements either.

2004 Product Source - Beyond these walls 

Radio magazine's annual Product Source, Beyond these walls.

Test and measurement in the digital age 

A few engineers believe it is easier to maintain a digital audio chain because they no longer need to deal with the audible effects of ground loops, noise, crosstalk and mismatches typical in some analog signal paths. Wrong!

Field Report: Mooretronix Stereo Tracer 

This interface facilitates making analog audio measurements with an oscilloscope.
