I strongly object to the content of the Newsbytes story "NAB Engineers Emphasize That Digital Power Hike Isn't a Threat" (Nov. 2008).

With IBOC digital radio stations already causing considerable interference to many stations, there is no way that doubling the digital power will not cause the interference problems to increase. It amazes me that the FCC is authorizing and allowing IBOC digital-created radio interference.
