With the development of technology and the digitization of aspects of our daily life, we have used traditional media in the same way, but through the Internet. This is an example of radio, which is one of the most suitable means of communication for new formats with the launch of its applications and the production of podcasts.
Due to the low consumption demand, together with music applications such as Spotify, different users consume different radios. One of those moments is when driving, where the radio frequency has stopped making it through the navigation system or with the mobile phone via bluetooth.
In view of this fact, many modern car manufacturers have stopped installing AM radio, which was already much less expensive than FM in the past. In addition, in electric cars, the AM frequency interferes with the electromagnetic field of their motors.
Although it’s true that it’s something that affects us a little in Europe, it’s a concern in the United States. This is because AM operates at lower frequencies and is capable of greater coverage than FM radio waves. Therefore, the National Public Warning System of the Federal Emergency Management Agency uses this system and is concerned about its possible withdrawal.
