The NAB Recording and Reproducing Standards Committee was originally organized in 1941. Standards proposals concerning Disc and Magnetic Tape (reel-to-reel) have been by the NAB Board in 1942, 1949, 1950 and 1953. These standards and recommended good engineering practices are for the guidance of the broadcasting industry. In 1964 and 1965 the Standards Committee completely revised its past audio standards and added to its list Cartridge Tape Recording and Reproducing. This paper will review past and current standards and activities of the NAB.
