Tune into HD Radio

The broadcasting industry has been abuzz about HD Radio for the past couple of years. It's an all-digital radio-broadcasting standard that--unlike the paid-subscription model of XM and Sirius satellite radio--is available for free. Plenty of HD Radio stations are now on the air (more than 600 at last count), but many are simply digital simulcasts of the existing AM or FM stations you already receive--great for improved, static-free reception but not much else.
