The data dilemma 

IBOC has been officially launched, but what do we do with the data capacity?

New transport methods 

When considering methods to move information from one point to another, it is interesting to reflect on how our needs have changed over just the past 20 years.

If you want to know who is investing money into FM subcarriers, look no further than the computer giant Microsoft.

A busy month 

So much happened last month, so there is lots of ground to cover.

The killer app for IBOC 

With the FM implementation of IBOC, standard broadcast stations will need to deal with a number of technical problems related to making IBOC work with RF propagation issues.

Field Report: V-Soft AM-Pro 

Although there are many software options for evaluating FM stations, there are few software packages to evaluate AM stations. AM-Pro is perhaps the newest package available, and it is proving to be one of the best.

A station buyer's technical checklist 

When a company decides to purchase a radio station, the station's technical plant is often overlooked by the buyer.

RF amplifier basics 

A radio transmitter is a collection of stages. How these stages function determines the operational capability of each transmitter.

Field Report: APT/Pulsecom PCAU 

Local telephone companies no longer support analog dedicated circuits. The PCAU gets around the limitation, as this review describes.

Radio's friend or foe? 

New technology can be described as either emerging or breakthrough. IBOC is hardly breakthrough.

An IBOC roadblock 

In the middle of May, the road to IBOC took a major detour. What has been an ongoing work in progress with a predictable slow and steady pace has been

The power behind the station's voice 

When buying a new transmitter, you will most likely be replacing an old unit or building a new site.

Fixing signal problems 

When reception trouble is reported, it's not always easy to find the cause.
