I can’t speak for anyone but myself, Bruce. All I see ‘over there’ is inflexibility and negativity. I really don’t know if they would support an increase in AM power, but I suspect that they would think that it wouldn’t be possible. And it’s pretty obvious that they don’t want to upset the NAB and friends/colleagues in the industry; what they don’t appear to realize is that they’re generating a lot of the fear and mistrust of Part 15 radio and interference by talking about pirates all the time, while slagging their fellow Part 15 broadcasters.
The ALPB hasn’t talked about AM yet. We’ve barely talked about FM. That’s why I have to laugh when there are those who jump on the talk right away and say it isn’t possible. What isn’t possible? Absolutely no decisions have been made. There are individuals that are pushing for their own personal wants, but that’s about it at this point. Again, this is only my opinion, but a lot of those wants aren’t realistic – I don’t think we can talk in watts, and probably not even in milliwatts, but microwatts (a whole heck of a lot better than nanowatts) might be possible.
