What is HD Radio Technology?
HD Radio technology enables broadcasters to
transmit a digital signal with its analog signal using
existing frequency allocations for FM and AM stations.
Quality of broadcast is improved to the level of music
CD in digital FM and that of analog FM in digital AM.
Moreover, if receiving condition is good, you can listen
to programs in stereo with the digital AM broadcast.
Digital FM of Supplemental Audio Services can send
up to 7 channels of the Supplemental Program Audio
other than the Main Program Audio.
· Main Program Audio (hereafter called Main channel)
· Supplemental Program Audio (hereafter called Sub channel)
