After ‘Stepping Back,’ What’s Next?

Citadel and Ibiquity are figuring out the next steps — and who will pay for what.

Stabbert said Citadel employees have been measuring the effects of AM nighttime IBOC subjectively — by ear — so far; it’s working with Ibiquity to determine what equipment and resources are needed to figure out a resolution.

That may involve some on/off testing and/or reducing the injection of the digital energy into one or both sidebands.

“We have a general idea of what’s going on; as we step back, we can do empirical testing with Ibiquity,” Stabbert told me.
