So has anyone other than Kahn heard his system for digital? The problem with that guy in my opinion is he's real good at spewing how great and superior his stuff is, but he doesn't give enough of his precious information out so that a guy can consider his products much more than vaporware. AM IBOC is a joke. I actually hope Kahn has something worth trying. Wouldn't it have been smarter to just ask for channel 6 when analog TV goes away for the AM IBOC simulcast utilizing the FM standard? Wouldn't it be worth waiting for?
