I have mixed feelings and my own views.

I got licensed in 1980, as Novice in June, and General the last day of 

I started AM operations late that year when I bid on the old club 
station, an HT-37 and an SX-101A.  Also came with a 12 or so inch 
National speaker, and a Shure 737A mic.

I've kept operating AM ever since, sometimes exclusively, some not.

It seems that all this fuss is pretty darn recent.  That meaning to me, 
about 3 to 3 1/2 years.

I really don't know if we want the FCC stirred up or not.  It is really 
a mixed bag.

Just my $0.02 worth.
