There’s a new HD Radio signal in the Washington metro region. Local station 92.7 WDCJ, which recently flipped formats after being sold, debuted its HD Radio signal sometime in the early morning hours of July 27. WDCJ broadcasts its IBOC signal on 92.5 and 92.9 FM. 92.5 is already home to a semi-local station (WINC Winchester, VA) and is unaffected. 92.9, unfortunately, is now wiped out by WDCJ’s digital signal while at home. This is not good since 92.9 was an open DX frequency in the area, save for occasional reception from a nearby translator. In my car, thankfully, 92.9 is still open, as evidenced by a booming signal from the aforementioned 92.9 translator just outside my home. I added the new HD Radio screenshots from WDCJ below to my RDS/HD Radio Screenshots page.
