Thinking of buying one ? http://wqcs.org/post/do-you-own-hd-radio-thinking-buying-one <P>One of the problems is finding HD radios in local stores and finding knowledgeable staff to answer the questions you may have.&nbsp; We've found our Local Best Buy store in Jensen beach to be well stocked and knowledgeable about their HD Radio inventory.&nbsp; Currently, they have two models available for automotive installation.&nbsp; They also have three models in the portable audio section.&nbsp; One model is a hand held portable set that works with headphones only.&nbsp; The second is a tabletop set that runs on batteries or AC power.
