    Hubbard Testing All-Digital AM on WWFD

    It's been discussed elsewhere on radiodiscussions.com that Hubbard Radio is testing all digital AM on WWFD in Washington D.C. The radiomagonline.com web site ran an article about it in July:

    It will be interesting to see how that works out.

    Here's a link to a video of someone receiving the station in Harrisburg, PA:

    Seems to decode OK that far out, but I dunno if Harrisburg is in the main coverage area of the station or not. The sound quality is no better than the hybrid system, but at least it's not nasty-splattering all over the adjacent channels anymore.

    One thing I've noticed is none of the demo videos I've seen of hybrid AM or this full digital test show any kind of PAD. Is AM incapable of doing digital audio and song title/artist info?

    Dave Garner said there will be metadata along with artist experience as part of the all-digital tests in the interview. I guess it's not up and running yet.
