the fcc should allow other forms of modulation besides amplitude modulation in the current AM radio band. First off the should allow a single side band at 95 percent of the rated carrier. For example WABC would have a carrier at their rated carrier 50 50k the side band at 45k. Also allow Digital Radio Mondiale in the other us used side band also at 95 percent or the carrier. Finally allow Frequency Modulation at the AM radio frequency. They should use the narrow band FM like the use for police

AM RADIO need not go away. We need new
original local radio programs, and up dated
technical facilities. With the new Tax Laws
commencing in 2013, this is an opportune time
to purchase state of the art AM equipment, and
get a tax break. There is a need for redesign of AM
radios to provide more band width, and noise suppression. I have a new BMW radio, and power line noise has disappeared. Also, AM needs signal retention from 6AM to 6PM even if reduced power.

although. I think this is a very good idea, it will just take a lot more effort because the FCC staff has not made things easier lately

Cumulus and Rams 1, 2 3 have a 95% move and New appication 307b awards and the FCC policies keep changing in their benfefit I would use them as case precedence and if you really want it done, use their FCC attorney, afterall he used to work at the Audio division for MANY years and was actually the ex fcc allocations mgr, and he gets it done, all though I don't bleieve this is ethical.

Being a vetran of several failed Fm and Am moves, i have learned that you can not give up, keep filing petitions for reconsiderations and it will eventually go to theUS District xcourt of appeals and they will act in a fair manner. Bud should also file a Full Commission review. It seems to be that certain engineering firms and fCC lawyers do get Fm and AM 's move3's through, it is sad that smaller groups as well as female owned and minority groups that can not afford or don't know what law firms are in with the audio division, are getting denied.
