    Wait… if the Talk format is on a TRANSLATOR’S HD2, what station is originating it? The main 102.9 signal comes from an AM station, 800 WNNW, which runs a Spanish format. Am I missing something… can a translator originate programming on its HD2?

    The analog signal and “HD-1” must be a simulcast of the AM station assigned. In this case 800AM WNNW.

    HD-2, HD-3, etc….can have any programming they want on it. The sub-channels don’t have to replicate an AM’s programming.
