I don't know how appropriate this is here, so will keep this short. Just
wanted to say that amateurs and "a limited number of commercial broadcast
stations" are _far_ from the only people who utilize HF spectrum. There is
the military, for example.

Broadcast stations are generally (at least here) strong enough that even a S9
noise level will be hard to notice, especially to the casual listener. It's
when you're trying to dig that 319 station out of the noise that it gets
tough.
