1993 Volvo 940 engaged. pg. 1:41 General information Sending signals The FM waves do not follow the earth’s surface nor do they bounce off the atmosphere. for this reason their range is limited. The AM waves follow the earth’s surface and reflect against the atmosphere, giving them a wide range.

Page 55

1993 Volvo 940 Weak reception (fading) Because of the limited range of the FM senders and the fact that these waves are very reflective, this problem usually occurs with FM reception. If the sender is blocked by buildings or mountains, static can result.

Page 56

1993 Volvo 940 Cross modulation If you listen to a weak station in the vicinity of a stronger one, both stations may be received simultaneously. FM – reasons for distortion FM is affected by the electrical systems of nearby vehicles, especially those without suppression. The distortion increases if the station is weak or poorly set.

Page 57

Reception conditions are not always optimum and this is, of course, beyond our control. However, we have endeavored to make the Volvo Audio System of a quality that will enable you to enjoy the best possible reception no matter what the reception conditions may be.
