The National Radio Systems Committee (NRSC) is jointly sponsored by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). Its purpose is to study and make recommendations for technical standards that relate to radio broadcasting and the reception of radio broadcast signals. The NRSC is a vehicle by which broadcasters and receiver manufacturers can work together towards solutions to common problems in radio broadcast systems.
Anyone who has a business interest in the technology being investigated by the NRSC is welcome to join the Committee and participate in its activities. Member representatives of the NRSC are generally engineers, scientists, or technicians with in-depth knowledge of the subject being studied. In order to promote the free exchange of ideas during Committee work, members of the press are not allowed to attend NRSC meetings. However, members of the press are free to contact Committee chairpersons, NAB, or CTA with general questions about meetings.
NRSC meetings are held on an as-needed basis, however meetings are regularly held at the annual International CES (January), The NAB Show (April) and The Radio Show (September). NRSC members must participate at their own expense.
