BSO on the radio - not for me anymore

And indeed, 89.7 HD2 [line of sight] is probably my only answer for 
BSO on the radio.  [No, I can't put my dipole in the attic].  Being 
clueless about the variations on the HD theme, is HD2 the same or 
lower quality [bitrate] than HD1?  Or will that vary depending on the 
station [WGBH in this case]?
    Thanks - George

Sid, You are correct about 99.5 HD.  However, since he receives 89.7 well,
89.7-HD2 might work better than 99.5 analog.

It's doubtful.  From anecdotal evidence, the HD carriers appear to have the
exact same problems with terrain as the analog signal.  As with analog FM,
height helps.
Can you at least put that indoor antenna in the attic?
