Default RE: AM or FM ???

AM radios transmit via Amplitude Modulation - They send signals by changing the amplitude or gain of the wavelength. FM radios transmit via frequency modulation - Sending signals by changing the amount of waves that move through a given space per second.

FM radio's transmit a cleaner signal that is less perceptable to glitching and interference. There are also more consumer electronics that transimit on AM, so this will also increase the likelyhood of interference.

Hope that helps.
