Five Clear Channel FM stations in three major markets will add HD Radio service by the end of the year. Radio World reported earlier this year that the five stations were among those planning to go digital.
Equipment for KIIS(FM) and KOST(FM) in Los Angeles, KYLD(FM) and KKSF(FM) in San Francisco and WDTW(FM) in Detroit is part of a larger purchase order signed by Clear Channel with Broadcast Electronics for transmission gear, the supplier said. The stations will use BE's low-powered FMi transmitters and FXi 60/250 exciters.
"The stations will either use a separate antenna for HD Radio or high-level combine the analog and digital signals in a common antenna, both configurations of which take advantage of lower-powered, and lower-cost, transmitters for the conversion," BE said in its announcement.
The broadcast group also ordered digital exciters and signal generators to generate the HD Radio signal and provide GPS synchronization and delay matching of the analog and digital paths.
