I posed this question not knowing if this has been done. I do know that with even some modestly accurate speakers, you can hear the crunchy metallic overtones of high frequency detail on many a battered under cut secondary channel, when great attention is placed upon the primary HD-1 channel audio.
I figure that if a station had really prided itself on presenting it's secondary service with great clarity, in other words if a format really required great digital texture, that a station could back off the bandwidth on their primary HD-1 and donate it to their HD-2 and use smart limiting on their analog FM for their primary to provide "retroactive" sonic quality like great FM audio of days gone past. I wonder if in some engineering circles if the request for this option was even thought of for a fleeting moment with a live in house alternative programer using HD radio but taking pride in all factors of digital delivery , very seriously.
