Electronics Research has completed a working prototype of a dual input side mounted FM antenna designed for FM IBOC applications. ERI says the new antenna is capable of transmitting both the analog and digital FM signals without requiring a high loss hybrid combiner or the use of a circulator to attain the required isolation between the digital and analog transmitters. The company says the design meets the current FCC requirement for informal notification of IBOC implementation requiring that all the elements in an FM antenna array be excited by both the digital and the analog FM signals.
A beta test is in the works for a Greater Media facility.
ERI expects production models of the new antenna to be available by the second quarter of 2004.
