The only ¨buzz¨about IBOC is the adjacent channel buzz it creates, you guys are beating a dead horse, when are you going to wake up and face the fact that it's belly up in the water, dead as a door nail .

Really? You really think that all that massive HD coverage on page after page in section after section of one day's USA TODAY just "happened"? Just because a bunch of staffers, all operating indeendently, suddenly realized that HD content was so compelling? That a bluegrass subchannel and a few low-bitrate classical HD-2s and HD-3s in a few major markets adds up to "cool experiments and initiatives"?

Really?

YKW, quite a coincidence huh? I'm just wondering how much money they're going to waste before they realize it's a goner. I've seen exactly three HD radios in my local big box stores (I live about ten minutes from the second largest city in New England) which normally carry this stuff in a year and only one worked and that was because it was less than a mile from multi use transmitter towers near Boston which transmits several HD channels. I was not impressed at al with the sound quality, give me my 30 year old analog Marantz 2385 any day. I have enquired about HD in several stores including circuit city and was told that HD "did not work inside the store" haha! They couldnt even demonstrate them and this is less than 5 miles from several very powerful HD FM transmitters, they steered me toward satellite while telling me the advantages of satellite and the disadvantages of HD.
Sorry Jacob but I calls 'em as I sees 'em.

"Radio: Ponzi's back!"

"Selected radio consultants, writers, and media organization heads are hired as carporegimes who act like press flacks and indie promoters to back Ibiquity and the HD Radio Alliance. Right?"

It's because of reporters such as Kim Komando USAToday who are on iNiquity's payroll.
