I'd be inclined to say "Huh?" too. Then I read it and realized the writer didn't have a clue what he was talking about and was lumping intentional and unintentional radiators together, either out of sheer ignorance or a desire to sensationalize the matter... something this FCC is not about to do.

The main Part 15 devices the AM broadcasters are most concerned about these days are electric cars, wireless chargers, and other such high power and potentially damaging interference sources.
