Let’s look at this from the audience prospective…aka general public and not specialized interest groups equipped so well that SSB, AM, FM, CW would not matter.
Most of the available radios that can tune the LW band, like those found on the Wal Mart shelves, Radio Shack shelves etc, are set up so they receive the LW band in AM mode. For this reason, my LW station will operate A3E 99.9 percent of the time.
Having a channelized setup is not a bad idea. I believe that this should be up to each of the stations so they can select a frequency not plagued with noises or cause interference. The two frequency standards called for so far…ie 162Khz and 180Khz may not be the best choice in some locations.
I do know that both of these frequencies are very clear in my area, hopefully the same will be true in other areas.
