HD Radio Implementation*

Thomas R. Ray III

HD Radio is the FCC-approved standard for high-definition digital radio. Since its official approval in 2005, stations around the world have started converting their analog stations to also contain a digital signal. So far, 1,216 stations have converted, and there is currently a 50% yearly conversion growth trend. This growth is driven by radio audience market share depletion from podcasting and satellite radio. HD Radio is the only way stations can compete commercially. Currently, the only place individuals can become trained for an HD Radio conversion is Harris (manufacturer): five-day course for $995 plus travel/lodging. This book provides the same in-depth hands-on training for a fraction of the cost--an excellent value for any station budgeting a conversion. It covers the installation process, uses examples from real-life implementations, and information not found in manufacturer's manuals. Item# F-100 - Pub. 2008 - 224pp
