I don't get it.  I can understand the side-band buzz on AM (such as WBZ
and WOR here in New York), plus the added hiss on the main channel.

But I've never noticed that problem with IBOC-FM.  We have WNEW-FM doing
IBOC and there's no sideband buzz anymore.  I do remember that happening
when they were first testing the equipment but they seemed to have solved
that problem.
