HD Radio Digital Carrier Power Calculations
Steve Davis
Senior Vice President, Engineering

With all the discussion regarding the true RMS power
in the digital sidebands for the iBiquity AM IBOC system,
I decided I needed to conduct some research. It has
taken me a while to post because I needed to consult
with some experts and run some tests to verify our findings.
To me this is basically an academic exercise, albeit a
valuable one: the AM IBOC system will work, or not,
regardless of our calculations or discoveries here.
