What about second-adjacent hash from 1260? I hope KFRN 1280 Long Beach
complains loudly to the FCC if 1260 starts I-CRAPping all over its (KFRN 1280)
This assumes Family Radio has so far stuck with analog on 1280, seeing as how
there is 1260, 1280 and 1300 all in the El Lay metro.
I actually know the engineer over at KFRN and last I talked to him (which was five months ago) he told me they had no plans for HD. I should call him and get his take on KGIL going HD.
The amusing thing about KGIL is the LA spin Levine tries to put on the station, such as giving it a Beverly Hills address. The tower site is actually in the San Fernando Valley which makes it difficult to get reliable reception in the LA basin due to the terrain. The Long Beach/Seal Beach area where I am is especially noisy for KGIL.
From what I've been reading, HD-AM is particularly problematic for multi-tower arrays. So I'm not sure how KGIL will fare with its 4-tower system. I doubt those few who own HD Radio receivers in the LA basin will get a good digital signal from 1260 given that their analog signal is already spotty at best.
