HD Radio NRSC-5 comments to FCC- Mostly against!
On July 14, an informal look at the 11 comments posted since the FCC issued its public notice on June 16 revealed that 10 of the respondents had objections or concerns relating to adjacent and co-channel interference in secondary coverage areas caused by AM IBOC operation.
Among the respondents were Canadian broadcast engineer Barry McClarnon and Leonard Kahn of New York. Both have authored articles opposed to adoption of IBOC digital broadcasting using Ibiquity's proprietary HD Radio technology in the United States.
The comments period remains open until Aug. 17. Those interested in filing comments can find more information at http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-05-1661A1.doc. Read the submitted comments at the this link.
