I don't have any direct knowledge myself, mind you, but if I were
building a digital automation system, I'd have the automation generate
the RDS subcarrier itself, and just add another baseband channel to
the switching system.  Stations doing Traffic Alert probably would
want the same thing, so that the jock or board-op wouldn't have a
chance to mess it up.
