Car Radio

What is HD Radio?

HD Radio® is the newest form of radio, promising better quality and more program choices. The clearer sound and absence of background static make it well worth the investment. You can buy an HD Radio to enjoy at home, or listen in your car, if your car is equipped with HD Radio. Many new cars come equipped from the factory with HD Radio including Subaru Forester, Audi, BMW, LandRover, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Scion, Volkswagen, Volvo, and many Ford and Hyundai models.

How do I use HD Radio? Tune in to your All Classical Portland station and your HD Radio receiver will automatically lock in to the HD1 signal for our station. One notch over on the dial and you’re listening to our HD2 station.
