HD Radio

DUQ listeners who have an HD Radio tuner can now get more of what they like, be it news, jazz or NPR. Listeners with traditional radios will be unaffected by the new technology, but those with a proper receiver will discover that digital radio provides two distinct advantages:

  • CD quality audio, making DUQ’s jazz sound better than ever.
  • The ability to get additional audio streams for free from a single frequency.

DUQ was the first public radio station in Pittsburgh to embrace HD Radio technology and the first public station to broadcast multiple streams.

Currently, listeners with an HD Radio tuner have the option of three DUQ programmed channels from which to choose.
