Glen Clark of Glen Clark & Associates will not get into the phasor business after all.

I wrote last August he was thinking about it, once it became clear the FCC would let AMs on at night with a digital signal.

Phasors (for you non-RF folks) allow users to change the antenna pattern; LBA Technology, Phasetek and Kintronic Labs are among companies that offer such products.

For several years, Clark had pondered manufacturing extremely wide-band phasors that could accommodate an HD-R signal. He even found manufacturing space and talked with potential vendors.

Asked why he decided to not to enter the phasor manufacturing business, Clark said, “I realized that if something didn’t have an RJ-45 on it somewhere, it wasn’t part of the future.”

Clark has been in radio some 40 years. He founded Texar, where he designed the Audio Prism and RCF-1 audio processors. Glen sold Texar and the Audio Prism to Gentner in 1988.
