Here's how the HDT-1 performs on the four HD3 signals
89.7 HD3 - Gets it most, but not all, of the time.
Cuts out at times.
98.5 HD3 - The best of them. There most of the time,
Dropouts very occasionally.
100.7 HD3 - Not listenable. Brief blips of audio, then
immediately reverts to 100.7 HD1. Occasionally I may
get them for as long as approximately one song here
104.1 HD3 - You wouldn't know it exists. I would not
have ever heard it if not for my Insignia walkman-type
HD portable, which gets it intermittently.
The iLuv, like your Kenwood, seems to have no problem
with any of them.
