>>Anyone have insight, comment or analysis?

"The next 100 channels (77.0 to 86.9 MHz) would be used to migrate AM
stations to the proposed FM new EXB band channels, where they would
operate in digital mode."<<

Good idea.  It makes sense, with one exception:  It says nothing about what happens to those TV stations who will be using channels 5 and 6 after the DTV transition next February.  There aren't a lot, but there are some.

Since it makes sense, expect fierce opposition from the NAB and anyone else whose interest is in maintaining the disparity between AM and FM that currently exists.
