Using the NAB Radio Show here in Seattle as a backdrop, Harris Corp. is ratcheting up its activities on the HD Radio/IBOC front. The company said it will launch certification programs for broadcasters and consultants in November, training them on the expected transition of radio facilities to digital.
Five-day courses will cover digital transmission and exciter issues; IBOC modulation methods; test equipment considerations; IBOC technical requirements and FCC mask requirements; and other topics. Earlier this week, Harris held the first in a series of six IBOC "road shows" to be held in cities where Ibiquity plans to begin its rollout. Harris also said Radio One has committed to buying turnkey IBOC systems from the vendor in several major markets, the first radio group to do so. Info: www.broadcast.harris.com.
