What do you guys think of the Sound Quality of Radio 1? To me it sounds pretty good, I was worried they'd give it sub-par quality like some of the Talk Stations.

Sounds great to me! I wonder how they receive Radio 1 anyway? I wonder if they get a satellite feed?

They probably have leased some transponder space to transmit the signal from the UK to the USA on a Pan-Atlantic satellite. Most likely they are using the PAS-9 satellite (PanAmSat9), which is the same one currently used to distribute "BBC World television" into Canada as well as Deutch Welle and many other international broadcasters into the Americas. It features 2 beams, one pointed at the UK and one at North America allowing uplink/downlink between the two areas.
