HD Radio SFN Is KUSC’s Booster
Radio Magazine, Doug Irwin, October 14, 2016
Many digital broadcasting standards utilize single frequency networks (SFN) to increase transmission coverage through multiple time synchronized transmissions on the same channel frequency.
Nautel Research Engineer Philipp Schmid presents a method to achieve precise input to output time synchronization for In-Band-On-Channel (IBOC) signal transmission across multiple HD Radio transmitters. Schmid utilizes lab results, bit error tests, and a real-world field trial installed at KUSC, Los Angeles, CA, including the equipment used, drive test result and overall system performance.
