From what I have read on the internet, iBOC is usually transmitted at -19db relative. Thus a 50kW atation broadcast iBOC at about 630 Watts. Due to the nature of the signal, it interferes directly on adjacent channels with nearly full effect. In CT 1080 WTIC at 35km obliterates 1070 and 1090 at nite. Only a high-power signal at distance can cut through.

As to the performance of car radios one needs to keep in mind the higher operating voltage and power of the devices, that gives noise-reduction techniques adaquate power to operate effectively. Portable equipment by definition doesn't have the power resources to allow consumptive noise-reduction practices.
