Re: New Radio Released

I wouldn't call it dead, because There are a lot of HD signals on FM.  I don't know about in smaller towns or rura areas, but large cities appear to have a good deal, if Chicago and New York are any indication.  But unless you specifically want to hear the additional subchannels to the main stations, and with the Internet, who needs the extra channels, HD serves no meaningful purpose.  A.M. HD, it is my impression, is pretty much dead.  Again, if Chicago is any indication and articles I read a few years ago, there is very little. 
 
But regarding supposed advantages of FM HD, aside from the extra channels, what about sound quality?  My opinion is that There isn't enough difference to go to the trouble to get an HD receiver.  The only other possible advantage I can see is that if you have problems receiving stations because of multipath, the digital signal may get rid of that problem.  But in my experience, just changing the antenna position for certain stations usually gets rid of that.

HD is dead? You should come to New York City. Every spot on the dial
save one has at least two HD channels, not including the digital copy of
the main channel.
