Stick with FM--- Some fliers like PCM, but the fail safe set-up can get you in trouble.

Check out www.torreypinesgulls.org/Radios.htm for some pretty good explanations.

Do a search on it. It has been discussed to death here on RCU. Also take the above comment about FM with a grain of salt. Many people fly only PCM. It is a great setup if you fly expensive stuff. Everyone has their own opinions about it though.

Every time I come to RCU, I bring a 2-lbs bag of salt. Every time I leave, it's empty

There's nothing wrong with AM either.You'll hear a lot of opinions to the contrary( I'll bet I have them typing already).But I have yet to ask anyone who says that AM is inferior to FM "Why?" and get any answer at all.Much less a reply that they can back up with facts or theory.
