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.

If you know your transmitter power and your insertion loss in dB ...
