Letter to the editor in the April 15, 1987, Radio World:
I’ve heard all the garbage I can stand about the AM stereo “issue.” The problem?
1. Motorola and Kahn each was a monopoly.
2. The stations don’t want to waste $6,000 on the wrong system.
3. The FCC is afraid it will be sued by the “sore loser” in a standard decision.
4. The receiver makers are afraid of wasting millions of the wrong system.
5. The listeners don’t know anything about AM stereo.
Does any of this sound vaguely familiar regarding some AM “improvement” schemes currently being used? Those that fail to learn from history are destined to repeat it, Bob.
