What Does Am Radio Stand for?

Answer

AM stands for amplitude modulation and FM stands for frequency modulation. For AM radio, the overall strength (amplitude) of the signal is varied in a pattern that forms the signal and the sounds heard. Just like AM radio waves, FM waves are modulated to form a pattern that transmits the sound information. Music usually sounds much better on FM.
