Re: “The Age of Dark Payola

I posted comments on David's original article, "HD Radio on the Offense", but I would like to put on different perspective on my comments this time. It is a given that HD Radio is a farce - the HD Radio Aliiance owned 50KW AM stations block out the smaller AM stations with adjacent-channel interference, the HD/IBOC audio quality (not that anyone cares) is not "CD quality" and frought with digital artifacts (just consider digital cell phones), HD radios annoyingly switch back-and-forth to analog, when out of range of the HD/IBOC digital signals, the HD1 streams are just digital copies of the main analog channel, and the HD2 streams are underfunded, bland, repetitve niche programming and after this year, will contain commercials, if ever profitable. I grew up in the 1960s, with transistor radios - I have across many stories, on the Web, of how transistor radios played an important part in many peoples' lives, and there is even a Website dedicated to childhood transistor radios: http://www.childhoodradios.com So, if you are a radio enthusiast, and are interested in preserving one our few childhood treasures, you must Say No To IBOC, before it completely trashes our beloved AM band with digital hash !
