This is NOT worded correctly.  Nobody (well, almost) is going to try to TAKE another frequency.  Ask Fred (or others you respect) if they are willing to try to squeeze in somewhere tight where they are fairly confident that their signal will be giving one of the adjacent stations a "hard time."  I think we've already heard the answer.

Or put another way...

Faced with the prospect of "nowhere 'clear' to go," I kinda doubt Fred (or any serious op) is going to throw up his/her hands and say, "Well, no room...guess I'll try another band."

And THAT is the scenario we all face.
