Product Description

Book Description

This book explains how IBOC works and how to implement it, and should be on the desk of every radio broadcast engineer and every person who designs or implements IBOC technology.

About the Author

David Maxson is Managing Partner of Broadcast Signal Lab, LLP, which he co-founded in 1982 to serve the needs of radio and television stations in the northeastern United States. Under his direction, Broadcast Signal Lab provides a full spectrum of technical services related to radio frequency safety, regulatory compliance, compatibility and interference issues. David also consults with emerging wireless and broadcasting technology companies on digital media deployment issues. For twenty years David served Charles River Broadcasting Company, whose flagship station was classical radio WCRB, Boston. As Vice President, Director of Engineering he was responsible for technical and engineering matters for the company's radio stations, its classical music production and syndication company, and its commercial sound system company. David is Broadcast Signal Lab's representative to the National Radio Systems Committee (NRSC) Digital Audio Broadcasting Subcommittee. With the NRSC, he was closely involved with the testing and evaluation of proposed In-Band, On-Channel (IBOC) digital radio broadcasting systems, which ultimately led to a formal IBOC standard in April of 2005. David chaired the NRSC DAB Data Multiplexing and Transport Task Group. He has published and presented numerous technical papers on IBOC signal measurement technique and on data broadcasting technology.

HASH(0xa17a8bf4) out of 5 stars The IBCO HANDBOOK is Essential to Understanding the how and why of Digital Radio June 26 2009
By Dennis Baldridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The IBOC HANDBOOK is chocked full of detailed explanations about all aspects of digital radio, both FM and AM. It is a comprehensive and logical progression from the basics through implementation considerations. A historical perspective detailing the development of the current standards is also included. If you ever wondered how or why some aspect of digital radio broadcasting is done, the answer is very likely within the pages of this all-inclusive book. Understanding how IBOC works, better enables a broadcaster to troubleshoot and evaluate any potential problems which might arise. This book provides an in-depth explanation of the In Band On Channel signal.

I used to book to help study for the SBE Digital Radio Broadcast Specialist Certification Exam (DRB) and found it extremely helpful.

HASH(0xa15e6a74) out of 5 stars An excellent book for broadcasters July 11 2009
By - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Not since the development of FM by Edwin Howard Armstrong over 70 years ago has the radio industry been `evolutionized' as with the adoption of IBOC (aka "HD Radio"). David P. Maxson's book brings to the reader a carefully structured tutorial on the technologies used in IBOC. His clear, readable prose is complemented with numerous illustrations and annotated with helpful sidebars guiding the reader from understanding of the initial creation of the AM and FM IBOC bit streams from audio and text, to the IBOC receiver itself.
The casual reader will grasp IBOC in concept, but the serious reader will appreciate Maxson's detailed explanations of each elegant component of the IBOC scheme...complemented with equation, example, and metaphor to help the reader really understand what's going on, each chapter building on the knowledge gleaned from the previous chapters.
