Comments Wanted On AM Interference Protection


Who listens to AM radio anymore?

The answer, of course, is a whole lot of people across the U.S. and its territories. Stations on the kHz band include Class A giants, such as iHeartRadio’s WGY-AM 810 in Schenectady, N.Y., Tyler Media’s KOKC-AM 1520 in Oklahoma City, and Cumulus Media’s WLS-AM 890 in Chicago.

What sort of interference protection should these booming stations, which reach multiple states after dark thanks to skywave reception, have in the modern age?

That’s exactly what the Commission would like to answer, and it is turning to the public for assistance in reaching its conclusion.
