WEMU began broadcasting with HD Radio™ technology on Wednesday April 7, 2004 at 11:00 a.m.

HD Radio™ technology combines historical analog signal generation and digital transmission at the same time on the same frequency.

To receive the new digital signal, a listener will need a receiver that is HD Radio™ capable.

The technology, developed by iBiquity, has been ten years in the making. The system was extensively tested for both AM and FM stations with FM stations being approved for 24-hour use of the technology in October of 2002. AM stations were approved for daytime use only.
