Is anyone in the Youngstown area listening to HD Radio?


Over the past few months, there have been a few stations in the Shenango / Mahoning valley signing on with HD Radio. I wrote a while back about Y-103 & Hot 101 going HD, but there have been other stations since then. K-105, WYSU 88.5 and 93.3 WNCD. The last station is also carrying a second channel featuring all Blues. I am able to pull these stations in with my new Accurian HD radio I recently purchased from Radio Shack in Erie. I was surprised to find one there since there are not any stations in Erie broadcasting in HD. I had to use my rooftop antenna in order to pull in the HD signals, but I was very impressed with the sound quality. If anyone in the Youngstown region has an HD radio, feel free to drop me a line & tell me about the local and out of town HD stations you are able to pull in. I will be writing an article on the potential of HD radio in the near future.
