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.
