He will also discuss some new and upcoming projects for NAB Labs. �One of our most recent projects, just now getting underway, is the upgrading of our radio laboratory test bed to include FM as well as AM radio testing capabilities, and I will be discussing that as well as some of the first FM lab projects we are considering,� said Layer.
