The current status of complementary (supplementary) FM as of July 5 2017

As I wrote, complementary (supplementary) FM services (including ‘Wide FM’) have been started one after another, among 48 commercial (private) MW stations in Japan.

I'd like to describe the latest situation in this time, as this is the only English description, I think.
