Here is yet another flaw in HD Radio that makes me wonder if the technology is even worth it for AM... Lightning.

Aside from causing massive interference to adjacent frequencies:

HD Radio is full of false advertising.

According to "them" (Ibiquity), all of the problems that AM has faced for the past 80+ years are gone when an HD signal locks. Immunity to the fade out (false - depending on if you live next to the transmitter, and it's power), the crackles (partially true, depending on how far away from the TX you are), and the lightning (false - this video is an example) are all claims by Ibiquity. As far as HD-AM being near FM Quality; listen to KSL-1160's IBOC signal and you will strongly disagree with that statement as well.

HD Radio is a flawed technology, plain and simple. Do your research:
