CURRENT PROJECTS

All-digital AM Radio Testing

NAB Labs is engaged in an all-digital AM IBOC test project with the goal of fully developing a performance record of operation in this mode. Deployment of all-digital IBOC services would require a change to the FCC rules, but to-date very little technical information on all-digital operation has been entered into the public record which is an impediment to FCC action in this regard.
