How HD broadcasting works

How HD broadcasting works  - HD Radio reception (U.S. models only) - Radio - Infotainment - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

HD Radio works similarly to conventional radio and broadcasts of this type are available in many areas of the United States. However, there are a few key differences:

  • Instead of transmitting one analogue signal, stations send out a bundled signal – both analogue and digital.
  • An HD radio receiver can receive both digital and analogue broadcasts. Depending on the terrain and location of the vehicle (which will influence the signal strength), the receiver will determine which signal to receive.
