Philippine Radio Station: Offering More Than News And Music The Filipinos

When it comes to news, information, music and entertainment, Philippine radio station are among the best sources. In the Philippines, a radio station is as important as having the radio in every household. It is where Filipinos get a grasp of the latest news in the locality especially when there is no television. Way back, the transistor radio is used by a lot of locals in order to know the newest incidents around – from headlines and most important news of the day down to the weather reports and traffic updates. And when we say radio stations, we are talking of both the AM and FM bands.

The AM radio stations were the first broadcasting stations which were developed. When you say AM, it means amplitude modulation or the style of broadcasting the radio waves through altering the carrier signal’s amplitude in answer to the signal’s amplitude that is to be transmitted. It is common in Philippine radio stations because of its simple signal which can be spotted using simple equipment. A power source is no longer needed when there is a strong signal. It also uses narrow bandwidth compared to FM.

On the other hand, FM refers to frequency modulation. It generally happens on VHF airwaves at a frequency range from 88 to 108 MHz. Like in western countries, FM radio stations in the Philippines are much more popular particularly because greater stereo broadcasting and sound fidelity happened to frequent in this configuration. FM stations are commonly associated with music.

Certainly, the desire to listen to important information and preferred music is found in many of us. Whatever we are doing and wherever we may be working, we need to listen to a certain radio station to listen to our favorite radio hosts or choice disc jockeys. Talking about music, it is known that there are individuals who can give more focus on their work while they are listening to their favorite music. Aside from that, it also refreshes your mind from the stress of daily hustle and bustle. We may have cassette players where we can play our favorite songs, then came the period of CDs and DVDs. Nonetheless, among the media presented, radio is still a great way to listen to music. It is the oldest and the highly popular medium and now, its fame is still increasing.
