What's wrong with AM? How else am I supposed to listen to Boston from Virginia? Or CBS 880 news out of NYC at 0500hrs?
Yea, not much you can do about that 60Hz hum off of power lines, other than get away from them. Those things are designed to transmit electricity but they also radiate a bunch of radio frequency interference [RFI]. Car radios actually have some of the best shielding built in but when you're sitting under a three phase 15K volt line your AM reception is still going to suffer.
