In a blog post that coincided with the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Wheeler for the first time indicated his opposition to reserving new FM translators for existing AM stations, asserting that any new translators should be available to all interested parties. He also suggested that there already are enough FM translator licenses available for AM stations and that licensees should purchase them on the open market, if they're available.
