Kahn Pushes New AM Digital Technology

AM Stereo proponent Leonard Kahn says he has developed a new technology that will restore AM to 15 kHz by using digital processing. "The system, Compatible AM Digital (Cam-D), unlike the pending proposal now before the FCC, will not increase adjacent or co-channel interference," he said in a statement. He said it could operate day or night and some Midwestern stations have agreed to test the system, based on a number of Kahn's patents. He stated his system would perform with a station's existing transmitter and antenna. Engineers queried about the system said the description was vague and lacked technical details.

Leonard Kahn says 10 broadcasters have agreed to test his Compatible AM Digital technology, and he expects those stations to begin field tests by the end of the year.
