[AMRadio] A proposal to help curtail pirate radio broadcasters

While it is true that the vast majority of pirate broadcasting is with small
low-power FM or HF set-ups, there is little likelihood that any legislation
that came out of this would make that distinction. The "aiding and abetting"
clause would almost certainly have a chilling effect on broadcast station
managers and owners being willing to freely give away or sell transmitters,
limiters, consoles or even loose components to individuals not directly
connected to ongoing licensed broadcast operation.

Kind of like the effect the Oklahoma City bombing had on purchasing ammonium
nitrate fertiliser, and drug addicts have had on the free availability of
hypodermic syringes, needles and even kids' chemistry sets,  although every
one of those products has plenty of legitimate uses. 

Another example, closer to home for most of us, is the infamous 10m
amplifier ban.
