I think you're still going to have people buying VHF radios (commercial 
and amateur) even with MURS is available just because of the limited 
number of channels.  Obviously the fact that it's illegal isn't stopping 
them, so why would they change when the alternative is an overcrowded 
license-free band?

As licensed users, it's up to us to USE that spectrum we've got, and to 
be aware of how it's being used by others.
