  • Interesting fact: The difference between AM and FM radio is that FM is line-of-sight, while AM bounces off the atmosphere (more accurately, the ionosphere.) AM stations have to reduce the power of their transmissions at night because the ionosphere lifts with the colder temperatures and lees solar interference.
