LEONARD KAHN, the pioneering broadcast engineer who created an AM Stereo system that competed in a bitter battle with MOTOROLA's C-QUAM for almost 20 years, died on JUNE 3rd at 86.
KAHN, a former RCA engineer, aggressively fought to get his system, developed with the HZELTINE CORP., adopted by U.S. AM stations, ultimately falling short and adapting the technology into the POWER-SIDE processing system. He later developed a "Compatible AM Digital" system, the "CAM-Da System."
