We had fm hd trials in N.Z and heard them on ch1 usually but they trialled hd2&3 at times. Michael&Ross --- On Fri, 9/18/09, Dennis M. Falk <quozl1@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: From: Dennis M.

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. > Just wish we had HD radio in the UK at least on FM Not sure I'd want to comment on this.... > How are sales of DAB+ radios going in Oz Ian btw ?! I don't have a current address for Ian- His Optus address- The last one I had, is bouncing. d.m.f. -- dmf's AM Stereo List - AM stereo and more!
