Find me on:


In HD Radio’s earlier days, a fixed architecture offered fixed time alignment between FM analog and its HD1 signal.  Today’s HD transmission systems are far more flexible, but time alignment can vary resulting in a confusing listener experience.  Alan Jurison with iHeart Radio is an expert on this topic. He joins us to talk about making sure FM/HD listeners get the best experience possible.
