Another point worth bringing up is a reminder that most commercially built 
transceivers, whether US-built or made in Japan, now have the AM mode 
included, and these radios are used world-wide.

If there were no demand for AM capability, in the highly competitive field 
of ham radio transceivers the companies would not be driving up the selling 
prices of their products in order to include a mode that they thought no-one 
was interested in using.
