- FM stands for frequency modulation and it refers to the transmission of sound signals through varying the frequency of the sound carrier waves.
- FM reception refers to the extraction of the original sound from the modulated radio signal, before playing it on a loudspeaker.
- FM reception loosely translates to the clarity of the sound coming off a tuned radio receiver.
- FM reception depends on bandwidth, with more bandwidth being effective in removing noise and producing clear sound.
- Narrower bandwidths are more likely to have noise and original sound distortion.
