HD radio-No portable radios will be available for YEARS said CEO!
Q&A With Ibiquity's Bob Struble
Bob Struble is CEO of Ibiquity, the company behind IBOC/HD radio, and this interview with him is enlightening, often in ways he may not have intended. I got a good laugh out of this quote:
Right now we could probably make a portable HD radio but it would take a car battery to make it work.
Struble also admits the original selling points for IBOC/HD----improved audio and no interference----are turning out to be non-starters with consumers.
