HD Radio worth it?
I'm considering buying a new head unit, mainly for Sirius so that I can get my Satellite Radio back.
Is HD Radio worth it? I know of a few stations around here that advertise their station as also broadcasting in HD.
I found a headunit from Kenwood that does both built in, for $299. The only thing that sucks about it is it only displays one line.
Does HD radio also stream the song name/artist like satellite radio does?

that some off the listed
Dude you forgot Charlotte, NC.
WFAE-FM 90.7 & WDAV-FM 89.9 You have got to hear some Blues in HD)). You would love it.
I found a better list at
It lists the stations broadcasting and any secondary channels they have
i dont think HD radio is worth it unless you live within 30 miles of the transmitter since the digital signals are operating at a fraction of the analog signal the digital signal is very limited.. trees, buildings and terrain cause the digital signal to go out even in the primary service area..... not worth it. sorry
Has anyone used the JVC KD-HDR1 which has built-in HD radio (receives multicasting content ) and retails for around $199.99?
