HD radio is not a better quality radio. The company that has the copyright on HD Radio has stated that the HD doesn't stand for high definition. it's just a "buzz" word , like "extreme"
"HD Radio" is the trademark for iBiquity's in-band on-channel (IBOC) technology, which was selected by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2002 as a digital audio broadcasting method for the United States. According to iBiquity's website HD Radio is simply a brand name, although their earlier whitepaper documents refer to "Hybrid Digital" radio technology. There is no connection with high-definition television (HDTV), except in the sense that both HDTV and HD Radio are digital formats.
So you would have to purchase a digital tuner , capable of recieving digital and analog.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HD_Radio
