This is about the best description of how it works...
It is from 2010 however.

When I've spoken with some engineers who have tried it, they said the results were somewhat less dramatic in the real world than presented by Mr. Foti.  This depended on the radio and antenna used.  A lot of radios in use today have gotten pretty good at concealing multi-path.

As far as I know, the FCC has not amended the rules for stereo to allow for complete elimination of one side of the DSB-SC stereo carrier signal.  In the  real-world I'm not sure it would wind up as a fine-able offence however.  Most inspectors likely would never know the difference.

What is the current status of this Single Side Band FM stereo idea?

 

Google doesn’t find any articles or info dated after 2012.

 

See:  http://www.radioworld.com/business-and-law/0009/ssbsc-a-winwin-for-fm-radio/324016

 

All I could find is the idea may have died due to incompatibility with some receivers.

 

But Orban and Telos Alliance still sell processors with this option included.   Anyone using it?   Pros, Cons?   Supposed to reduce multipath distortion.
