AAIRO Files Comments with the FCC

In response to the FCC's recent Notice of Inquiry about revitalization of the AM radio service , specifically Paragraph 18, AAIRO in March filed formal comments, then in April filed a reply to comments by others.

In essence, these comments state reasons for a belief that expanded use of an expanded band will not result in a revitalization of the AM radio service. Further, the comments request that "if such efforts would be undertaken [by the FCC]... the TIS service...be spared degradation for the sake of the agencies that operate TIS stations and for the millions of taxpayers served."
