Wheatstone AirAura X3 Gets HD/FM Time Alignment

Eliminates need for external gear to correct HD/FM diversity delay

The AirAura X3 processor from Wheatstone is now capable of off-air monitoring, measurement and real-time correction of HD Radio diversity delay, sans external gear, thanks to the addition of HD/FM time-alignment.

Wheatstone has embedded the diversity delay, as well as its measurement and correction, within the AirAura X3 audio processor.

The goal of this is minimize listener tune-outs when the HD signal blends to analog at the fringes of a station’s coverage. The diversity delay is kept in alignment, removing the need for outboard hardware.
