Coming in late on this, but I've got a dumb question... why wouldn't you run both? It's not an either/or situation...

Best,
Jeff

I'll be calling you on that one. You know how I like to push the NX50 out there on Vashon! I have wanted to do this so expect a call or email soon.

Why would run IBOC at all unless you want to increase Ibiquity's coffers?

Not my job to decide if something "should" be done... my job is just to figure how how it "can" be done and to help folks that want to do it. :)

I don't see any conflict between IBOC and MDCL. That issue was addressed a few years ago.

I did get the NX50 transmitter set up for MDCL with IBOC. Was very easy to do with the latest firmware update. Just waiting to see the effect on the power bill. I also helped an Iheart station install MDCL on their Harris rig. They use a closed air conditioned room for the transmitter so not only are they using less power for the transmitter but it also produces less heat so the AC does not have to work as hard.

The Nautel was alot easier to get the MDCL working since it's an option in the software set up. I recently had to buy a new vehicle. According to the saless person I was the first to evaluate a car based on how 7 AM stations sounded on the Radio. Was not at all impressed with what VW had. Ford with a Sony system sounded best and had good reception. I got a used 2011 model that did not have an HD radio but a decent AM radio. I may still get an HD radio, if anything it will be fun to go to car toys and drive them nuts just listening to AM stations to evaluate the radio.

Why is this thread active again? Let sleeping dogs lie. This was hashed out to the point it needed to be. No need to bring it back.
