There’s more from me up on Toppy today from my recent trip to St. Louis. In addition, there are a pair of new HD2 station legal IDs up along with a pair of AM stations and an FM Talker (KFTK) that I recorded via its HD2 feed on KIHT-HD2.
I recorded all of the HD2 subchannel content from a house in Staunton, IL, located about 40 miles northeast of St. Louis. Some HD2 stations made it in, while others didn’t quite have the juice to crank it; I was actually surprised with how many HD2 signals made it into Staunton. There’s no static when HD radio goes out; it’s either there or it’s not.
One cool note: you’ll notice the song at the end of KYKY-HD2 legal ID is “Never Forget You” by The Noisettes. It’s cool to see a band like them that have hit it big in the UK get airplay in the United States, even if it was “only” on an HD2 station.
