HD Radio, an issue with enormous impact, is the digital FM/medium-wave standard being adopted by more than 2,500 stations in the U.S. and elsewhere. The technology allows broadcasters to transmit a high-quality digital signal with near CD, crystal-clear sound. In addition, it increases listening options with multicasting for additional music and news options.
Arthur C. Clarke, renowned scientist and author of the legendary 2001, A Space Odyssey, pioneered the communications satellite concept 60 years ago with a paper entitled ?Extra-Terrestrial Relays, an article that has since transformed communications. Clarke combined the technologies of rocketry, wireless communications, and radar to envision an extra-terrestrial system that relied on orbiting space stations to relay radio signals around the world.
