Ibiquity Digital Corp. clarified a point about the licensing fees it plans to charge broadcasters for its in-band, on-channel digital audio broadcasting technology. Company President/CEO Robert Struble told attendees at the Public Radio Conference this week that translators and boosters would be exempt from the fees, a key point for noncoms. When RWO asked about the status of negotiations with major broadcast groups over the fees, Struble said he could not comment.
He confirmed the company has applied for experimental licenses for its co-headquarters in Warren, NJ and in Frederick, Md. for additional system testing.
Meanwhile the additional SCA receiver tests are complete and the IAAIS is mulling over the results, which Struble said showed no meaningful interference. NPR said the results showed no impact on the subcarrier channels, nor was there 1st adjacent channel interference, although there was some 2nd adjacent channel interference. Results are expected to become public soon.
