Last month we also reported here that the four stations of the University of Southern California had signed Ibiquity licenses to go HD Radio. Now details of the project timetable are emerging.
KPSC(FM) in Palm Springs plans to turn on HD Radio on Aug. 1, followed a month later by KCPB(FM) in Thousand Oaks. KFAC(FM) in Santa Barbara goes HD-R on Oct. 1 and flagship KUSC(FM) in Los Angeles will go HD Radio later in the year, according to RF supplier Broadcast Electronics.
BE said L.A.'s first noncommercial HD Radio licensee will implement a low-level combining scheme that uses one FXi digital exciter and one FMi solid-state transmitter for both analog and digital FM.
Pablo Garcia is director of engineering for KUSC(FM)/University of Southern California, which operates the four-station network.
