Canada finally has an AM station testing digital HD on AM, rather than the usual practice of placing AM stations on a co-owned FM’s HD channel. As well as
being “first on the dial” at 530, CHLO was also the first station acquired by current owner Evanov.
530 ON Brampton CHLO June 8th marked the beginning of digital HD testing in Hybrid IBOC, making CHLO the first station in Canada to use HD on AM. There is already a report of interference on the international maritime Navtex frequency of 518.
