It sounds like a good idea, but how many people are going to rush out and buy the HD radio set just to get WEEI and WRKO? Unfortunatly HD radio sounds like a lame duck, much like AM stereo and UHF converter boxes (before all channel TVs became mandated). Very few people will buy an extra piece of equipment for something that may just dissapear tomorrow or of limted value (perceived or real). I have an AM stereo receiver and 2 external digital TV boxes (an Accurain HD box and a newer Magnavox SD box). I don't know anyone else outside of this list or the industry who have either.

I've been wondering if using an otherwise unused HD3 signal might solve the
problem WRKO and WEEI have with the western suburbs. Entercom could put one
of them on WAAF-HD3 for example. I think only WGBH currently uses their HD3
