Ahead of the curve 

Everyone needs the right tools for the job. Our goal at Radio magazine is to provide you with some of those tools.

The path to IBOC 

As we get comfortable with the new knowledge of IBOC, new questions arise almost as quickly as old answers are found.

New quest for a new year 

The end of 2002 saw a Notice of Inquiry that could once again create havoc for some spectrum users.

Cause and effect 

The many sides of the current and future states of radio.

The IBOC rollout begins 

The FCC has selected in-band on-channel (IBOC) as the digital radio broadcast technology of choice for AM and FM--what does this mean to you?

Report card 

The NAB Radio Show in review.

Completed cycle 

The change, though subtle, is important to note.

Road trip 

You might not think that this was a fun way to spend a summer vacation, but it afforded me the opportunity to listen to the radio. If you play it, they will come.

Digital radio has arrived 

Clear sound, good content. Digital radio is a reality.

Stunted growth 

Already 10 years in the making, in-band on-channel digital audio broadcasting has promised to be the next evolution of terrestrial radio; an evolution that would carry the radio industry through the next 100 years.

Sorry I missed you 

The NAB convention has come and gone. What was different about this year's show was typified by how many people I did not see.

Who will buy? 

As IBOC gets closer to being a reality, radio stations are starting to see the light ahead. This light is not just the promise of an improved service, but also the realization that nothing in life is free.

Looking Good 

Welcome to the new look ofr BE Radio magazine.

Good sound or sounds good? 

Satellite radio is here. Five years after the FCC issued the two licenses, this service, anticipated by some and feared by others, is a reality.

HD Radio: Making the grade 

At the end of November, the National Radio Systems Committee released its report recommending that the FCC authorize Ibiquity Digital Corporation's FM In-band On-channel digital radio broadcast technology as an enhancement to the current analog FM broadcasting system in the United States.

Something to celebrate 

At this time of year it is customary to look back at the events of the past and look ahead to the possible future.

The show might go on 

Last month I wrote about the role that traditional broadcasting played in relaying information when many newer technologies could not keep up with the events of September 11. Just days before that event, I was putting some thoughts together about another event that took place earlier that same month: the NAB Radio Show.

Service provided 

When a major historical event takes place, we often remember, and are usually asked repeatedly, “Where were you at that time, and what were you doing?” September 11 is one of those days.

Tuning in satellite radio 

From when the satellite radio licenses were first issued, I have been asked repeatedly if satellite radio will succeed. My answer then was a resounding maybe...

Watch Those Hands 

I am sure you have cursed another driver for paying more attention to his cellphone call than to the road. The sensory blitz of everyday life is hard
