If you can get VPR News on your regular radio, you can hear VPR Classical and the BBC World Service as well by using an HD (Hybrid Digital) radio.
What is HD Radio?
Hybrid Digital radio - HD Radio™ - is a technology that enables Vermont Public Radio to broadcast programs a high-quality digital signal alongside our existing analog broadcasts.
What are the benefits of HD Radio?
How do I get HD Radio?
You’ll need to purchase an HD Radio receiver in order to hear this service. You can find options for your home, car, pocket at many audio and electronic stores. You can also find buying options at hdradio.com.
I just want to hear VPR Classical - do I need an HD radio?
VPR Classical, our 24-hour classical music service, is on several analog (traditional) FM stations across Vermont. Click here for a list of those frequencies. If there isn’t an analog station near you but you can get a VPR News station, you’ll be able to get VPR Classical with an HD radio.
Will VPR eventually stop broadcasting in analog and go to HD only, like TV?
All of VPR's stations will continue to broadcast as we do now, in analog, on the same dial positions. That won't change. Our HD Radio services are in addition to our analog signals, which are not affected by HD radio.
