Crawford is now broadcasting in HD Radio™ technology!
What does that mean?
- Have you wished you could get the same clarity of sound from your radio as you do from your CD?
- Or that your radio signal didn’t fade out just when you wanted to listen to your favorite radio program?
Well, now you can.
HD Radio Technology is Here! HD Radio™ is a technology destined to revolutionize the AM and FM broadcasting industry. Approved by the FCC as the digital broadcast system for the radio industry, the noise and interference that cause the static, hiss, pops and fades heard on today’s analog radios will be virtually eliminated with HD Radio™ digital broadcasting. In addition to crystal clear reception, HD Radio™ will dramatically enhance sound fidelity – AM will sound FM-like, and FM will rival the quality of compact discs.
So just think, you can hear your favorite radio program in its purest, clearest digital form. Your favorite artists will sound awesome… crystal clear…straight from the recording studio!
HD Radio™ technology has enhanced data services. What does that mean?
HD Radio™ technology allows new wireless data services to be delivered from AM and FM radio stations. This allows you to see or hear the name of the artist and title of the song as it’s being played, or gain immediate local traffic updates, or view weather, stock and news information. As available, your local Crawford Broadcasting station will broadcast this information to data capable HD Radio™ receivers. Also get more information from local retailers on special contests and promotions specially tailored to you, the listener!
Sounds good, but what else?
HD Radio™ technology also allows for Multi-Casting which gives you more options. In addition to the programming you’re used to hearing on your local Crawford Broadcasting station, you can now tune into HD2, a BRAND NEW radio channel. But, you can ONLY hear it with a new HD Radio™ with Multi-Casting technology.
How I can hear the broadcast in HD Radio™ Technology?
To hear your favorite radio program in its purest digital form, you will need a special HD Radio (TM) receiver for either your car of home audio system. The good news is that the station you listen to will remain on the same dial position and you can still hear your local programming with your current analog radio. But if you have a new HD Radio™ receiver you will hear us in our new digital format.
When and where will the HD Radio™ receivers be available?
These units are available now in consumer electronics stores (check with local retailers). Ask for it by name. HD Radio™. It’s the wave of the future and Crawford Broadcasting Company will make you a part of it!
