The AFAB Subcommittee of the NRSC was formed in 2011, as a venue within the NRSC for discussion and activity pertaining to analog broadcasting technology.
For over a decade and a half the DRB Subcommittee of the NRSC has been a broadcast industry focal point in the development and testing of in-band/on-channel (IBOC) digital radio.
The DSM Subcommittee of the NRSC focuses on digital information that radio broadcasters send to their audiences via the growing number of data transmission technologies in use today. It is a “formulating group” with the ability to develop and adopt NRSC standards, guidelines and reports. This group was formed in September 2018 by a “re-formulation” of the Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) Subcommittee.
