HD Radio

HD Radio (HDR) is a trademarked term for the in-band on-channel (IBOC) digital radio technology used by AM and FM radio stations mostly in the United States, Canada and Mexico, with a few implementations outside North America. The system transmits additional digital data associated with an existing radio station's standard analog signals, rebroadcasting the same signal in a digital format with less noise. The digital data may also include up to three additional digital radio signals, which can be used to broadcast other stations within the same frequency allocation.
