Digital Radio Measurement Workshop
Broadcast engineers familiar with analog signal measurements are now challenged to master new techniques for evaluating their digital signals. To ensure good signal quality and minimize interference, it is necessary to make accurate measurements of Hybrid IBOC signals. This session includes a review of scalar measurement techniques with spectrum analyzers and power meters, and will provide an introduction to vector measurements of IBOC signals. The session will also touch upon the impact of amplifiers, filters, and antennas on AM and FM IBOC signal characteristics.
Each technical session will offer 'Question & Answer' time following each presentation.
