Engineer Proposes Across-The-Board AM Power Increase
May 3, 2010 at 4:34 AM (PT)
NEW JERSEY radio engineer RICH ARSENAULT is at it again with a proposal to allow all AM radio stations to increase daytime power ten-fold.
A petition reproduced on ARSENAULT's website which the engineer says he filed with the FCC on APRIL 10th proposes the increase or an alternative four-fold increase because, "The primary factor limiting reception of AM Standard Broadcast Radio during daytime hours is no longer interference between stations, but interference from electronic devices and power lines." The proposal leaves nighttime increases off the table due to interference with foreign broadcasters.
