HD Radio is the new digital broadcast format. Approved by the FCC as the digital broadcast system for the radio industry, the noise and interference that cause the static, hiss, pops, and fades heard on today's analog radios is virtually eliminated where an HD signal can be received.
HD radio must still meet the FCC rules for coverage. It is a new technology and as of this time it only works well in the primary licensed area of a station. There is an ongoing discussion in the industry about this as it causes problems for all stations as their analog signal can be received well beyond the primary coverage area. The industry wants to increase incerease HD power and coverage area but has yet to get permission from the FCC.
HD Radio technology will provides us with the ability to send additional data such as weather alerts, news bulletins and more information which will be visible on the data screen of your HD Radio receiver, adding a new dimension to broadcasting. We hope to add some of those features to our signal in the near future.
To hear WICN in its purest digital form, you will need a special HD Radio receiver for either your car or home audio system. WICN is on the same dial position (90.5 FM) for both HD and analog radio.
