the top limit for AM broadcsat rigs is 7500Hz
with 2500 hz guard band. Including harmonic energy, the FCClimit is 30 khz
Bear in mind the spacing of AM stations is done for this reason among others

Paul, are not AM broadcast stations still assigned frequencies on a 10 KHz

If so, that would appear to limit the upper end of audio response to about
4500Hz, leaving a small amount of guard band between adjacent stations.

Straighten me out on this one, please!   <:}
