The superiority of FM (that being that you can sit at a traffic light and not get a buzz from the power lines or be able to pick the station up after dark after the night pattern kicks in) remains without the pilot.
KUHA comes to Katy fine in mono
, so most radios can turn the pilot off automatically in a weak signal area. For car radios, where this type of format is the most useful, the signal is strong enough for stereo in North Harris County. If coverage area is a concern, look at the HD--why not shut-off the HD instead? According to another poster KGLK used to be listenable to Madisonville, but after HD, it's now listenable up to Conroe.
