The FCC voted for final authorization for IBOC today.
The decision, when it takes effect, would allow all AMs to go digital at
night. Audio Division Chief Peter Doyle told RW Online there would be a
procedure established to handle interference issues, should those occur. The
decision also gives a green light to multicasting, so broadcasters no longer
need to apply for experimental authority to multicast.
The digital conversion is not mandated and the item allows for FM
translators, boosters and LPFMs, if technically feasible, to go IBOC as
It will be real interesting, when all of the nighttime AM'ers lose
half of their listener base, with no one listening with HD radios -
we'll see, how long that lasts !
Actually, the big boys have HD, so they won't be having problems. Of
course the FCC just told the smaller stations to go screw themselves.
