ACSModel - AM Directional Antenna Moment Method Modeling Software

Au Contraire Software, Ltd.; John Furr, CPBE; Cris Alexander, CPBE, AMD, DRB

ACSModel is an AM directional antenna moment method modeling program based on the MININEC3 core. It was specifically created to allow engineers to take advantage of the FCC’s moment-method performance verification rules contained in 47 C.F.R. §73.151(c). The program allows calibration to the measured impedance matrix, detuning of unused radiators and determination of the base - or loop-sampled operating parameters of AM arrays. The user specifies the frequency, defines the model "wires" (towers and top-loading) and enters the directional parameters. The program runs the unity drive solution, calculates the drive matrix and the user can then run the model with any of several outputs. More details about the software, including sample charts, are available. Item #SW-01 - CD software

Au Contraire Software, Ltd. was founded by John Furr, CPBE, a well-known broadcast consulting engineer. With his partner Cris Alexander, CPBE, AMD, DRB, the company draws upon more than 60 years of experience in allocations work, system design, construction and field tuning of broadcast facilities.

HD Radio Implementation*

Thomas R. Ray III

HD Radio is the FCC-approved standard for high-definition digital radio. Since its official approval in 2005, stations around the world have started converting their analog stations to also contain a digital signal. So far, 1,216 stations have converted, and there is currently a 50% yearly conversion growth trend. This growth is driven by radio audience market share depletion from podcasting and satellite radio. HD Radio is the only way stations can compete commercially. Currently, the only place individuals can become trained for an HD Radio conversion is Harris (manufacturer): five-day course for $995 plus travel/lodging. This book provides the same in-depth hands-on training for a fraction of the cost--an excellent value for any station budgeting a conversion. It covers the installation process, uses examples from real-life implementations, and information not found in manufacturer's manuals. Item# F-100 - Pub. 2008 - 224pp
