– What is HD Radio®?
Hybrid Digital radio is a technology that enables KAMU to broadcast programs through a high-quality digital signal. These signals are free of static or interference and feature cleaner, richer sound. HD Radio® is not satellite radio, such as SiriusXM. An HD Radio® receives programming, including regular FM stations such as KAMU, at no cost.
– Listening in a car or on a home radio
Many 21st-century vehicles have an HD Radio® built in. If your vehicle has one – or if you have an HD Radio® in your home or as a portable device – simply tune it to 90.9 KAMU-FM and wait a few seconds for the HD® logo to light up and/or the numbers 1 and 2 to appear. Those numbers allow you to select and listen to our two noise-free content and music streams at no cost:
HD-1: (KAMU 90.9-1): This is the higher-quality version of our 90.9 FM broadcast.
