A little bit of information on what an AM HD Radio exciter looks like:

IBOC exciter, AM HD Radio

IBOC exciter, AM HD Radio

That is a Nautel version. The Harris version is called the “Dexstar,” Which has been nicknamed the “Deathstar” by those that work in the field. I was calling it the Harris Disaster, but found that nick name to be ambiguous.

    Yeah, I gotta hand it to Bob Savage. Talk about an up hill battle. One of the most telling things that has developed as of late, WHAM has turned off it’s night time HD Radio so as not to interfere with WWVA. The latter is operating at reduced power into a temporary wire antenna until it can rebuild it’s transmitting towers. Sort of a back door admission of guilt, if you ask me.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

...radio was discovered, and not invented, and that these frequencies and principles were always in existence long before man was aware of them. Therefore, no one owns them. They are there as free as sunlight, which is a higher frequency form of the same energy.
