We had fm hd trials in N.Z and heard them on ch1 usually but they trialled 
hd2&3 at times.

DSP, probably.

I have two HD receivers- Radiosophy HD101.1 and Insignia (Best Buy) NS-HD01 
(the first pocket HD receiver, and cheapest HD receiver yet)- Both are 
excellent receivers, both on sensitivity and selectivity, with decent sound. 
Neither HD station locally is functioning properly (just the ID tag-- This is 
NOT a problem with either receiver, as I took the Radiosophy with me on a trip 
to LA, and the HD worked PERFECTLY-- Actually, the HD2/HD3 channels worked 
BETTER than the HD1 main channels!- I didn't have the Insignia at the time, 
althoughj it was on order), but the RDS worked as advertised, and FM gave great 
sound... :)

(I'd definitely recommend both radios.)

BTW, I can confirm, although surprisingly both stations in question were weak 
in the hotel I was in in downtown LA, that KNX 1070 and KDIS 1110 are HD 
stereo- The only stereo AM-HD stations in LA.

Not sure I'd want to comment on this....

I don't have a current address for Ian- His Optus address- The last one I had, 
is bouncing.
