I found this line in an article on the CBS7-Chicago web site and thought it did a great of summing up the state of HD digital radio today.

The article also said, “there are about 40 radio stations here in Chicago now broadcasting in HD. Their move to this digital technology means that 40 radio stations become 80 radio stations, with the potential to become 120 stations.

“But the HD Radios you need to get those stations are not quite flying off the store shelves. About half a million are expected to be in use nationally by the end of this year. So, if you like listening to the radio, HD Radio may be one of the best things you’ve never heard.”

The good news for consumers is that an HD Radio would would be an idea Christmas gift for just about anybody because hardly anyone owns one.

Of course, that’s not much of a Christmas present for broadcasters.
