Well, if I'm remembering correctly, the AM band has been extended
twice. Somewhere back in the early days, it used to end around 1500
and was extended to 1600, and more recently it has been extended to
1700, immediately enhancing the usefulness of old radios that were
set to receive the old police band at 1700.
A lot the AM Extended Band has been good for, but the older band
extension has been filled up to the point where we can't tell the
difference any more.
