Frequency Modulation (FM) Technology Overview This same technology is used by local FM radio stations to broadcast music. FM signals can travel through frequency. Unlike infrared, FM transmission are not secure. This enables a receiver to travel further distances from the source. This section of the manual will help you design a system that will get the best range and least amount of interference.
System Overview There are four main parts to a Stationary FM system – transmitter, antenna, receiver and input source, . Input Source The input source can be audio from a sound board, microphone or a personal audio source like a CD player, MP3 player, computer, DVD, etc.
