And once again you publicly prove that you are totally incapable of defending the "merits," such as they are, of HD-AM without levelling personal attacks at those with whom you disagree. You have never, occasionally or even once, made anything resembling a plausible case that HD will cure the problems you allege for AM radio.
On the contrary, that's all I, and others here have been doing.
Instead of discussing the technical issues and implementation we've been derailed by stupid or self-serving diatribes.
As for " levelling personal attacks at those with whom you disagree" please, that's been you stock-and-trade here.
I guess you don't see the irony in the quote I mentioned in my previous post. Coming here lecturing people on programming is really bizarre.
In fact, over five years of experimental operation of HD-AM - including now about 6 months of 24-hour operation - prove that IBOC will NOT provide a solution
As allways you purposely ignore the fact that up untill now, only a few specialty radios have been available.
You can wish and hope all you like, but untill we have iboc embedded in the common radios that consumers actually buy, we won't have a verdict on AM iboc. That process will begin this year with the next generation of decoder chips, and it will take atleast 6 years for adequate market penetration.
All it's doing is junking up the band with intolerable levels of noise and driving listeners away FASTER.
Another assertion that you and the others make routinely. Got any hard, authoritative numbers on that? So far it appears that AM iboc has neither hurt nor helped AM.
Given that we are "almost six months" into 24hr AM iboc, where is all that public outrage?
NOBODY CARES. If they did, the WOR you denigrate so arrogantly would have been magically lifted from the alleged slough of "vanity" programming thanks to the magic of HD-AM which the station has programmed - and promoted - since the inception of IBOC.
All that snow up there must be getting to you, nobody mentioned WOR in any context. To refresh your memory, the 50K vanities are: WEPN(WHN) WBBR (WNEW) and WQEW -radio Disney.
Go ahead and repetitively spew your iBiquity talking points. HD-AM continues to massively stiff in the marketplace. Nobody wants it except for a self-interested few. Looks like just about all of them post here.
My "talking points" are my own experiences, I don't give a damn about ibiquity.
I've used the system daily since Nov 2006, it works well for FM reasonably well for AM (1 of the seven stations is not reliable, WCBS).
Here comes more "doom and gloom" if you add together the advancing age of AM listeners, their declining numbers and near zero listenership under 45, along with the slow migration of AM's only viable formats to FM, it becomes plain that the band will be a very different and grim place in ten years if nothing is done.
AM iboc works. It will truncate coverage but it will provide the tools to prevent it's complete elimination or abandonment to whoring.
