There’s no AM radio left on Prince Edward Island:

What use could it be now? How much data can 640Khz to 1400Khz carry? One would guess about 760Khz, almost a megabit per second. Not a lot of bandwidth really.

Amplitude Modulation is dead, Marconi would weep if he weren’t so fascinated by wi-fi.

How about some emergency broadcasting that needs to take place over a long-distance?

Amplitude modulation is all around you, shooting through your very corporeal being as you read this. Tune your dial. This time of year you can get VOCM on the car radio and hear nightly Newfoundland phone-in talk radio, a cultural touchstone. You can also hear all the way to St. Louis to Venezuela to Iceland if the troposphere is willing, Brazil on a fluke. Short distance AM radio is for sissies.

A 10 watt (night power) AM radio station in Kentucky was received in Northern NY state! And night power "is" sissy power - and that's also why!

530AM in Cuba is easily heard every night in Ottowa, Canada.
