NRSC Adopts Updated Guideline On RDS Usage

The National Radio Systems Committee (NRSC) today adopted an updated NRSC Usage Guideline that focuses on recommendations for broadcasters and receiver manufacturers in the use of the Radio Data System (RDS) data broadcasting technology.

NRSC-G300-A, RDS Usage Guideline was adopted by the Radio Broadcasting Data System (RBDS) Subcommittee, chaired by Dan Mansergh, director of engineering, KQED Public Radio, San Francisco, CA. Roughly 70 pages in length, G300-A adds significant additional information that focuses on emergency alerting using the RDS subcarrier.

The updated guideline will be available free-of-charge on the NRSC's website (www.NRSCstandards.org), following a final, procedural review which will take about two weeks. Additional information about the NRSC, including information on becoming a member, is also available on the website.
