About the advantages and disadvantages of FM/MW/SW
FM (Frequency Modulation Broadcasting): (Radio wave signal: the amplitude remains unchanged, and the frequency is adjusted) The characteristics of listening to FM broadcast are low interference, clean sound, stereo (dual channel) programs can be received, and a wide range of audio; Disadvantages: Because the FM frequency band is mainly transmitted in a straight line and reflected by ground objects, the signal transmitted by a radio station has a short propagation distance and a small coverage area. Generally, only local stations can be listened to.
SW (Shortwave): The propagation of shortwave is mainly carried out by sky waves. It can be transmitted to a long distance with the help of sky waves with a small power. The sound quality is poor. The advantage is that the transmission distance is long, the coverage is large, and international broadcast programs can be heard. To
MW (medium wave): It can be transmitted through sky waves and ground waves. But Tianbo is very unstable. In the propagation process of sky waves, factors such as path attenuation, time delay, atmospheric noise, multipath effect, ionospheric fading, etc., will cause weakening and distortion of the signal and affect the effect of communication. Its characteristics are noisy, strong directivity, weak anti-interference ability, sound quality is acceptable, and the advantage is that it can receive far away wireless broadcasts in mono. Due to the influence of the ionosphere, there is basically no signal received during the day.
