I have read somewhere that RDS is being removed from microMPX, is true, as this would be a step backwards for me

No. You probably read that an option to remove or replace the RDS from the incoming stream is in the making.

That, indeed. We had several requests from stations that need to replace the RDS for specific streams. And that's now possible, although it's NOT recommended, as replacing the RDS content will cause small peaks in the signal (if you used a composite clipper) and we need to lower the output level to compensate for that. (We do keep the new RDS data bits in sync with the original content, which limits the level loss to about 0.28 dB, which is still better than the loss that you get if you take a signal without RDS and then add RDS to it).

We will definitely never remove RDS from MicroMPX!

Hi all, thank you for your replies. I am glad to hear that microMPX RDS is staying.
