IBOC Injection Analysis
For high-level (non-coherent) and mid-level (coherent) IBOC injection.
  • The calculator for high-level (non-coherent) IBOC injection is used to analyze the combining of a single digital transmitter and a single analog transmitter for broadcast over a common antenna. By adjusting the “Analog Output” (amount of analog power being sent up the transmission line) and “Coupler” values, it is possible to get a complete overview of the entire power budget of the transmission system (with the exception of line losses). This makes it possible to determine the most cost effective coupling solution.
  • The calculator of mid-level (coherent) IBOC injection is used to analyze the combining of an existing analog transmitter and a new, combined analog/digital transmitter for broadcast over a common antenna. “Total Analog Output” is the total analog power of the combined transmitters that is being sent up the transmission line.
