Paul, I don't have a problem with the translators for AM's. The vast majority of the problems impacting AM are the fault of the FCC. They broke it and they are now responsible to help fix the problem.

AM and all radio broadcasting would benefit if the FCC would immediately drop all public file and main studio location rules. It's regulation that's killing all radio. The FCC should stop all action except technical interference issues, including all electrical noise generators.

Pai proposes to revitalize the horse by giving every horse owner a car.

The FM band is already saturated with stations and adding thousands of new ones can only degrade existing FM signals. It was bad enough having interference standards relaxed to enable low power outlets.
People who buy AM stations know the limitations of the medium and they pay a lower price than what an FM would cost.

If an AM operator wants to upgrade let him shell out some cash and buy an existing FM station.

- Paul Lotsof, KAVV
