    How To Fix AM Radio

    Here at the Buckeye Media, we're seldom flooded with calls from desperate owners of Ancient Modulation stations axing the Nurse and me what they can do to save their dinosaurs. "..FM translators...relaxed FCC rules...better equipment, etc.." are some of the suggestions bandied about. We have a different take, which is visually displayed in three easy steps: https://youtu.be/cRFBab-OteQ Step 4 is to remove remaining debris and hang a For Sale sign on it.

    A solution also found useful in Los Angeles, but in true Hollywood style, complete with an airborne camera shot!

    And replace it with what? Another ham band (OK, I and many other hams would put it to good use. )?

    Sorry, but despite the number of countries reducing or eliminating its use, it's still allocated as a world-wide broadcast band. I don't see that changing. It'll take action by the ITU to change that, anyway. Also, in a country the size of the US, there will always be a few hundred Ancient Modulation stations that will make at least some money.
