So Corus has added HD Radio to their stations in Hamilton, Vancouver, and Calgary. Anybody know which market will be next?

^^^ Not all Corus stations, at least here in Hamilton. Only CING-FM 95.3MHz has been modified.

107.9, CJXY-FM (I think I have that callsign correct) "Y108" has not been modified. And knowing how close 107.9MHz is to the aircraft band, I'm not sure if it can be modded... The only way it can be made HD ready is to only put the digital "racket" on the lower side of the channel... Not sure if Ibiquity has actually done that in an installation. Apparently it is possible...

And how that plays out in digital coverage remains to be seen.

What I was asking was if anybody knew what market that has Corus stations will be the next to have HD Radio running. We have Hamilton, Vancouver and Calgary. Anybody know what the next market will be. I guess market size and if Corus has both a FM & AM station in that market would determine which will convert next.

They're using this to make up for deficiencies with their AM talk stations' signals, so I'd bet on CJOB Winnipeg appearing on 97.5-2 and CHED Edmonton appearing on 103.9-2 next.

Here's a list of the 39 Corus radio stations:

Radio - Corus Entertainment

Unfortunately I didn't see mention of present and future HDRadio stations there.

^^^^ I don't think Corus can make a blanket commitment as each station's switch to HD Radio has to go through IC (Industry Canada) coordination with respect to the frequencies used, as well as the CRTC, although some recent CRTC decisions have leaned towards each station's owners first approving the use of HD through out their list of properties as being a precursor to allowing a station to implement it.
