mediageek 2-17-06: HD Radio — Is It Really High-Definition or a High-Dollar Scam?

Digital radio has been slowly creeping onto the US airwaves for the last nine years or so. Recently, expensive receivers bearing the marking “HD Radio” have started appearing on the shelves in an obvious attempt to associate digital radio with high-definition digital TV. But is HD radio all it’s cracked up to be?

John Anderson, of DIYMedia and Free Press’ Media Minutes, has been working on a year-long research project on HD Radio. On this edition of mediageek he tells us how HD Radio is not exactly high-fidelity, and is more about generating profits for HD Radio’s patent-holders than enhancing the listening experience.
