I may have missed something in the thread but there are some commercial operators who are adding HD after acquiring a translator, so they are able to put their HD-2 or HD-3 on the analog translator in a manner similar to the way AM stations can add an FM translator partner facility

Saga does this in several markets (including a couple of the markets where I work).

Problem was, and remains, the extortionary fees for licensing the technology.  The FCC should have purchased the license for all stations to go for it.

Here in Los Angeles, there's not much HD left on AM.  Off the top
of my head, I know that these stations have dropped it.

570, 640, 710, 830, 1020, 1110.

790 turns HD off at night, but 980 and 1070 still run it full time.

Last night I drove home after an FMeXtra install in the High Desert, and
the only AM HD I heard were 980 and 1070, plus KSL 1160 in Salt Lake
City.  There used to be a lot more HD hash messing up the AM band at

I do some work in Albuquerque and there is no HD AM left there.
