SYRACUSE — Listeners of the NPR programming on 89.9 WRVO’s Syracuse repeater, WRVD 90.3, now have the ability to hear both WRVO’s main feed, and the “WRVO Extra” HD2 feed.
The station just added HD capabilities to the WRVD transmitter. Most HD signals don’t reach as far as analog signals, so while many Syracuse listeners may be able to hear WRVO’s analog signal, they may not be able to hear WRVO-HD or -HD2. The station says the new HD capabilities on WRVD will help bring the HD programming to more listeners.
WRVO’s programming is also carried in Watertown and Utica, but according to the station’s website, “upgrade plans [in those markets] have been put on hold until additional money can be found for these projects.”
