I think the situation is different. AM is older technology. I
suspect the best thing that could be done to encourage AM might be to
require receiver manufacturers to do a decent job with the AM part of
Are people still applying for new AM stations? If so, I wonder why.
It occurs to me that if most of the commercial broadcasters go away,
the AM band, with or without IBOC, and perhaps with some new
standards for station separation, might become an ideal place for low-
power community stations and college and high-school stations,
instead of trying to find places to fit them in on FM.
