CPB Seeks Applications for HD-R Interference Study

CPB Seeks Applications for HD-R Interference Study

The deadline is May 23 for those who want to apply to take part in a CPB study of HD Radio interference.
The point is to determine the extent of coverage problems and the loss of analog and digital coverage due to interference, CPB says, with the long-term goal of figuring out how such coverage loss might affect pubcasters audience. That’s an issue because after years of growth, the overall audience for public radio is now static, experts say,with public radio subject to the same siphoning of listenership as commercial radio from the Internet, iPods, MP3s, and other new personal technologies for content delivery.
CPB seeks applicants for a study of at least 50 of the largest public radio markets in the U.S. and 25 smaller markets.
