ANALOG RADIO Traditional radio broadcasting for local stations in the United States and throughout the world generally falls into two main types: AM and FM—standing for amplitude modulation and frequency modulation, respectively. These are the particular methods of radio transmission used for many years in broadcasting audio signals to home, car, and portable receivers. In North America, AM is used in the medium frequency (MF)—also known as medium wave band—whereas FM uses the very high-frequency (VHF) band.

To accommodate the additional bandwidth that is required to carry both digital and analog channels, many cable operators have upgraded parts of their distribution networks to optical fiber, but the connection to the home may still be by coaxial cable. In the United States, digital cable may carry SD and HD DTV programs produced for ATSC transmission using MPEG-2 video compression, but the cable modulation system used is QAM, which is different from the over-the-air 8-VSB standard. To accommodate this, ATSC broadcast channels undergo some form of conversion at cable headends, and this may introduce some degree of quality degradation.

Like DAB, ISDB-TSB is intended for multi-program services and is currently using transmission frequencies in the VHF band. One unique feature of this system is that the digital radio channels are intermingled with ISDB digital television channels in the same band. DRM DRM stands for Digital Radio Mondiale, a system developed primarily as a direct replacement for AM international broadcasting in the shortwave band, although DRM can also be used in the medium wave and long wave bands. DRM uses the same channel plan as the analog services, and, with some restrictions and changes to the analog service, a DRM broadcast can share the same channel with an analog station.
