If I lived closed to Baltimore, D.C., or Philly this IBOC radio would be a permanent part of my collection, but in Lancaster Pa there's just nothing on the HD2 channels. So I'd basically have a standard analog radio with the same old crap that I have now.

And I didn't get *any* AM stations with this unit. Very poor sensitivity on the AM side.

I am not spending time in Lancaster like I was a few months back, but 88.7 HD-2 is a broadcast of WXPN's "Y-Rock" station (88.5 HD-2 in Philly) that is really really good if you listen to modern rock.
