Is there any PPM data to indicate if anybody is listening? This is getting
like UHF in the 50's.

industry figures show that new HD station conversions have slowed to a
trickle. Last figures I saw for US stations showed approximately 17% of FMs
and 3% of AMs are running HD at all, not to mention those AMs running it
daytime-only. Considering that it has been a viable transmission mode for
almost a decade, I don't think the prospects look good.
