An electrical engineer and ham radio operator has filed a Motion to Dismiss with the FCC for IBOC, claiming the system “has been shown to cause substantial and nearly continuous interference to adjacent stations” in both the AM and FM bands. John Pavlica has suggested the commission wait to issue final rules for IBOC until alternate systems, such as Eureka-147, are tested. He also believes it’s best to wait to authorize FM IBOC until after the AM system “reception issues” are resolved.
