HD Radiotm - What is It?
HD Radio technology is new. It allows digital information to be broadcast along the same channels as AM/FM radio. The system allows listeners to enjoy "CD-quality" sound and virtually eliminates the static, signal fading, and pops typical of traditional radio. The technology also provides a platform for new data services, such as song and artist information, weather services, and traffic alerts. And best of all, it's FREE for consumers.
What are the benefits?
- FM broadcasts with CD-quality sound.
- AM broadcasts with FM stereo quality.
- Broadcasts will be static-free, without pops, hiss, and signal fading.
- New data services, such as artist and song title, plus scrolling text, traffic updates, weather reports and more.
- Opportunities for entirely new services, like surround sound, multiple audio channels, store-and-replay radio, a "buy" button for music, sports, concert tickets and more.
- It's FREE, just like today's analog AM and FM radio.

WYPR HD Status
The installation of our new digital transmitter was completed in September 2007 and will enable WYPR to increase its output power. This new equipment is the latest technology, which provides HD multi-channel, digital broadcasting. This means that WYPR will be able to broadcast as many as four audio streams in high definition audio. You will need a new HD radio to hear these audio streams and they are available now from many electronics stores.
What formats will be heard on these additional audio channels? The first channel is available now and offers a high definition digital version of WYPR's current programming. Beginning January 15, 2010, WYPR's HD-2 will braodcast the BBC World Service. The BBC, perhaps the finest international news service in the world, is a valued partner of WYPR, but we do not have enough time in the day to offer all of their programs on our analog signal. Through HD-2, listeners will have all-day access to the BBC, and will be able to hear some of their best shows, such as "Newshour" and the groundbreaking interactive program "World Have Your Say." Since most of our listeners are self-confessed "news junkies," we are happy to offer a second source of news around the clock.
HD-3 will offer musical programs, including jazz, classical, folk and World. We have not yet decided on the schedule. We will also make HD-3 available for occasional NPR feeds that we don not carry on the analog, such as Senate hearings.
Below we've included a few products that will allow you to enjoy all of the WYPR HD channels. Plus when you purchase through WYPR you are supporting our efforts in the community. NPR HD and HD Radio Page. Thank you for your patience during this period of growth and we hope you will enjoy WYPR's new clear signal and the new HD broadcasts.
