HD Radio - What is It?
HD Radio technology allows digital information to be broadcast along the same channels as AM/FM radio. The system allows listeners to enjoy "CD-quality" sound and virtually eliminates the static, signal fading, and pops typical of traditional radio.
What are the benefits?
* FM broadcasts with CD-quality sound.
* Broadcasts are static-free, without pops, hiss, and signal fading.
* It's FREE, just like today's analog AM and FM radio.
In order to listen to 88.9 KSEF-HD you need an HD Radio receiver.
