Even just a loosening of the antenna restrictions on part 15.219 and keeping the 100mW input. allow the operator to install whatever kind of antenna ground he chooses and keep the 100mW Power input restriction.
We are talking AM here. a 100mW even into a full 1/4 over a 1/4 wave ground plane is not going to cause any interference and lets face it. how many people are going to go to those extremes for 100mW. there is not much interest in part 15 as it is and maybe less than 1% of those can afford and/or are willing to go to those extremes.
the people who get into AM are people who truly want to serve their community and 99% of part 15 am people will co-ordinate with each other to mitigate interference.
look at the georgia cluster. they all pooled their resourses and made a massive community network.
