Broadcast engineering consultant Richard Arsenault has petitioned the FCC to allow AM broadcast stations  to increase power levels anywhere from 4 to 10 times present levels.   Rationale (quoting his petition):  
"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."

His petition and related information can be found on Arsenault's web site at:


Thanks to Radio-Info.com and their online columnist Tom Taylor for calling attention to this.
