Anatech Electronics January 2022 Newsletter

Anatech Electronics January 2022 Newsletter - RF CafeSam Benzacar of Anatech Electronics, an RF and microwave filter company, has published his January 2022 newsletter that features his short op−ed entitled "AM Radio Is Not Dead. Yet.," where he surveys the current AM landscape including listener demographics, current technology, and FCC regulations. As a lifelong AM listener myself, I definitely fit into the age-60-ish typical adherent, and talk radio is my primary daytime programming preference. In the evenings I switch over to FM music stations. Over the air broadcasting is also still my choice, and my radios typically use dials connected to variable capacitors - no electronic pushbutton tuning. Most AM and FM stations also offer Internet-based access, where all of the static, fading, and other forms of signal degradation are eliminated. Truthfully, those "annoyances" are nostalgia to my 64-year-old ears, so I don't mind needing to occasionally reorient an antenna or tweak the dial a bit for good reception. Sam believes - probably correctly - that AM radio will be gone by the end of this decade. The way things are going, I'll be gone by then as well, so hopefully AM broadcasts will hold on just a little while longer...

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
