The problem with that approach is that most AM stations are strong enough to override RFI, in most locations, on the AM broadcast band.

That's not even close to being true. More than 30 years ago, a colleague who was Chief Engineer at WLS, a 50kW clear channel station licensed to Chicago with a transmitter site SW of the city center, found that his station could not be heard through the noise in Ford vehicles in the northern parts of the city. Noise conditions are FAR worse today.

Growing up in WV in the '50s, our NBC radio affiliate was WLW, a 50kW clear channel station on 700 kHz, 125 miles away.
