IBIQUITY DIGITAL today commended COFETEL, MEXICO’s Federal Telecommunications Commission, for a proposal that, when approved, will allow radio stations along the country’s northern U.S. border to voluntarily begin broadcasting with HD RADIO technology. The proposal applies to stations located within 200 miles of the border.
"MEXICO is poised to join a rapidly expanding list of countries around the world that are leveraging HD RADIO technology to transition from analog to digital broadcasting and, in the process, revitalize the airwaves with exciting new content options," said IBIQUITY DIGITAL Pres./CEO ROBERT STRUBLE. "We look forward to working with our partners to provide MEXICAN AM and FM broadcasters with a seamless and cost-effective solution for their digital radio needs."
