Boston FM HD Coverage
Sun Nov 16 10:50:44 EST 2008
Just asked an engineer friend at VT Public Radio and he says IBOC FM HD is
20db down from the main signal, but that there is a pr0posal to raise it
So, for example, a 20,000 watt main FM analog signal the FM HD is 200
watts. In the same example the proposal would raise it to 2000 watts.
Even a 200 watt signal from the Pru or 128 towers isn't bad.
I don't know if the AM specs are same, but if they are, a similar 200 watt
signal on HD AM , in a market like Boston, would not have nearly the same
impact as the HD FM example
