There has been some discussion around the radio activist community on various subjects that impact the AM broadcast band.

RM-10619 is a petition from the wireless cable industry to allow for "force tune" technology that will automatically change the set top box to a single channel on the wireless cable system in the event of an EAS activation. Current rules require EAS equipment on every channel of a cable system. Even though this type of arrangement is suitable for an analog cable system, it is more suitable for a system that requires the use of a set top box to receive the service to be able to use alternate technology, such as "force tune". REC endorses rulemaking on this subject and asks the FCC to expand it to also include other set top box based technologies.
