KDAQ / Red River Radio: the only digital radio broadcast outside of New Orleans, says Poling
"Supplemental and emergency information will also be able to be sent to radios to display as text, similar to what you may already have if you subscibe to satellite radio," added Poling.
You may begin shopping for digital radios. The good news is that they're no longer very expensive.
Says Poling, who loves a good tech toy himself, "Your conventional "analog" radio will still receive the analog signal from KDAQ. But if you're interested in this new digital technology, we will work with local retailers to make sure radios are available. We will also offer some radios through our Web site. Many of the major manufacturers have digital radios for home, office and cars at a variety of levels. Please watch this Web site for future details about the Digital Radio kickoff at Red River Radio."
The splashy announcement of digital broadcasting will take place in March at LSUS.
