Cumulus has turned on HD Radio at two stations in central Pennsylvania.
WWKL(FM), licensed to Palmyra, was the first station in the Harrisburg/York/Lancaster area to begin IBOC digital broadcasting, according to Regional Engineering Coordinator Dave Supplee. It broadcasts at 92.1 MHz.
The group subsequently also turned on WNNK at 104.1.
WWKL is using the common amplification method with a single transmitter. WNNK is using the "interleaved" or dual-antenna method with a separate, small digital transmitter.
Ibiquity Digital is taking a role, sending an employee with its test van to Harrisburg.
"We plan on taking several days cover the signals of both stations to see what, if any actual improvement will be had by this new technology in a real-world setting with very difficult terrain issues," Supplee said.
