At my job I'm working on the design an FM antenna that can be sold as a "HD Radio ready" antenna. I'm trying to find a clock-radio like thing that has an external antenna input that will recieve HD stations. I've spent the past hour or so looking for a table-top type of thing, but I can't seem to find anything other than vaporware.
I did find a Kenwood system, but it's for an automotive application and needs a Kenwood CD player to work. Ugh.
Is there anything out there? Or is this new HD Radio standard too new?

Most FM radios take a F connector (coax) - if they are higher quality.
A few have the twin lead folded dipole screw.<ul><li><a href="http://www.radio-info.com/mods/board?Post=277850&Board=dx">Link</a></li></ul>

...was from iBiquity's site, an article in the Automotive section of the Boston Sunday Globe (14 Nov 04), and from what I've seen and heard around the office. It seems that this HD radio standard is pretty new and not many companies have started to make products to recieve it. Only about 1 out of 5 radio stations around here broadcast analog along with the new HD standard.

I'm not very confident that the product will ever take off... Oh well, I get paid either way.

does that help?
