WVAQ(FM) is on the air with HD Radio in Morgantown, W.Va. It began digital broadcasting on April 24, according to engineer Ralph Messer.
In March, another station owned by West Virginia Radio Corp., WKWS(FM) in Charleston, threw the HD Radio switch. The company is using Harris transmission gear and ERI combiners.
"West Virginia Radio Corp. is proud to be the first to be broadcasting digital radio in the state of West Virginia," Messer told Radio World.
"After the setup, we got to listen to the difference on a test receiver. All I can say is WOW, the difference is awesome. The best way to describe it is to listen to a good FM analog rendition of a song, then listen to the same song directly off a CD. The difference is very noticable."
Radio World invites stations that are on the air in HD Radio to notify us via e-mail to radioworld@imaspub.com.
