How Does HD Radio Work?

1- Stations bundle analog and digital audio signals (with textual data, such as artist and song information, weather and traffic, and more).
2- The digital signal layer is compressed using iBiquity’s HDC compression technology.
3- The combined analog and digital signals are transmitted.
4- The most common form of interference, multipath distortion, occurs when part of a signal bounces off an object and arrives at the receiver at a different time than the main signal. HD Radio receivers are designed to sort through the reflected signals and reduce static, hiss, pops and fades.
5- The signal will be compatible with HD Radio receivers and analog radios.
