The second edition of HD Radio Days will include a presentation of the final report on the ongoing HD Radio field trial in Switzerland.
The Swiss field trial is now in its second phase, which will include the start-up of an HD Radio translator for the Luzern region.
The HD Radio Days event will be held 4–5 October, at the Radisson SAS Hotel in Luzern.
During the event, HD Radio-equipped vehicles will enable participants to drive around and test the in-band, on-channel digital radio technology themselves. Workshops will demonstrate a frequency assignment simulation and a wide selection of receiving equipment.
“A lively stream of HD Radio ‘tourists’ has been visiting central Switzerland ever since the start of HD radio broadcasts from Lucerne in June 2006,” said field trial initiator Markus Ruoss. “Various equipment manufacturers, mainly suppliers to the automotive industry, come to Switzerland and test their HD Radio sets here.”
