What is HD (Hybrid Digital) Radio?
HD Radio devices receive a digital signal using existing FM frequencies and require no Internet connection or monthly fee. Hybrid Digital radios will allow you to listen over the air at home and at work in the GTA/Hamilton area. And an HD radio in your car will enable you to tune in to The Wave at NO COST!
How to listen to The Wave on HD-2 on your car radio:
Many new vehicles come equipped with HD Radio and will notifiy you of this capability with a small HD logo that lights up on your dash or control panel once you tune in to the station of your choice. The Wave can be found in Toronto and East of the city on 95.9 HD-2. It can be heard in Toronto and to the West on 94.7 HD -2. Once you tune in to either 94.7 FM or 95.9 FM, activate your HD Radio receiver by selecting the HD option. Once you have done that, you will need to push the “scan” command which will advance from channel 1 to channel 2 on HD. The Wave is on channel 2 of both frequencies.

Many newer car models come equipped with HD receivers.
If your car does not have HD Radio, there are many car radio aftermarket systems that provide HD Radio capability.
