Unless you have a "HD Radio" you are not hearing our HD-1 audio feed.
How do I know if I have a HD Radio?
You can check your car's manual, or look for the "HD" logo on your car's manual, or radio when listening to 104.7 Heart FM. This technology is new, if you have an older vehicle you most likely do not have a HD radio.
I have a HD Radio?
First, make sure you have not confused "HD" with "RDS" - "RDS" or Radio Data System is a technology that will read out the Artist and Title of a song. Most radio's produced after 2005 have "RDS" If you have a HD radio, tune to 104.7 FM and wait 8-10 seconds when listening - you might almost hear a change in the audio when HD kicks in, and the HD logo will light up. Once the HD logo has become bright on your radio, you are listening to Heart FM in clear HD - the best audio you can possibly hear 104.7 Heart FM in!

The signal cuts in and out?
Just like FM the signal cuts in and out, however with no static in the digital broadcast you either get it or you don't! The Heart FM HD signal is slightly weaker then our FM signal, so while you may get 104.7 FM in a parking garage or downtown London, you may not get Heart FM HD in the same spot. We broadcast from one of the highest points in Oxford County and can reach Oxford County, Stratford, Brantford, London and Kitchener!
