    I dont like the idea of clear channel owning lucent(R) that license hd radio transmitters
    my community station can not aford to pay dues to broadcast HD , no one has any radio’s
    and it’s a very poor data rate for , much like a old mp3 , and there is no way to update HD radio’s
    like you do your computer software to keep it at the best sounding plug-ins.
    the fcc should never let radio go the way of the digital TV dial , we cant aford to lose our last remaining commmunity stations to the digital knife in the back that is HD radio…

    and whats this new pirate radio movie all about ???
