I'm not following the reasoning here.  How are listeners never
fighting noise below 1710 kc?   In some cases noise (or by noise are
we thinking of QRM?) is worse on medium wave broadcast channels
because noise is usually AM and so are the desired signals.  Also the
receiver passband is wide.   Those TIS stations usually run only 30 to
50 watts and use physically small antennas.
