I fully concur with Crow. If we are to re-introduce this “Lost Band” to the general public, then we must make it incredibly easy for the general public to be able to tune in and listen.
Of course any of the stations may choose which mode of operation they want to operate with. One mode will work better than another..aka efficiency factor. But does the listening public care about how efficient we can make our transmission, or would they be more concerned about being able to tune in easily and being able to actually understand the audio without all the swish swash wahh wahh?!
And as Crow pointed out….the average person has no idea what SSB is, or even what CW is. They are quite familiar with what AM is and what FM is.
So with that..why not stick with what works in the public’s mind and ear.
