Re: Anyone notice how the Chicago FM HD Digital sub channel signals are disappearing.
Jeremy that is true they do not bill, but, you do not put in effort for good programming, there is no reason for them to bill. 94.7 HD2, oh lets retransmit WLS-AM in Mono, a 60s -70s oldies outlet would never work! (in a period when classic hits is dominating). 96.3 HD2 it is stupid to air a classic hits format like Party Radio or Killer Bee. Let's air Channel Q! (Channel Q is not bad, but it is just there to clear markets, not generate local love of the format). Irony, EMF mixes up their HD sub channels with KLOVE retro formats, foreign language and leasing out to BOOST. Sad that a commercial free empire is turning HD *on*, not off! They have mastered how to utilize the technology.
Most important, turning them off, will take whatever listeners and force them to a competing platform, most likely not terrestrial radio. It is just stupid business.
If they are turning them off to save the monthly licensing fee, there are bigger problems at hand they need to deal with, as there are larger expenses than that!
