What's Next for HD Radio
The HD Radio digital broadcast format has now been in the U.S. radio marketplace for more than a decade. Many perceptions about it were formed early in its rollout but echo today.
For this special eBook, the eighth in our series, Radio World steps back and attempts a high-level perspective and update of changes in recent years, and discusses the possible direction it will take next. We sought comment from proponents, critics and other observers.
RW contributor Randy Stine lays out the station and receiver numbers, and what participants are saying about them. News Editor/Washington Bureau Chief Leslie Stimson asks skeptics to comment. IBiquity’s Rick Greenhut discusses the “translator strategy” and expanding data applications. RW Technical Adviser Tom McGinley asks three HD Radio proponents to discuss what engineers should know if they are considering implementation. And John Kean of NPR Labs explains how an IBOC “power allowance calculator” can help FM stations understand their HD Radio upgrade options.
