ABSTRACT
The article highlights the radio equipment that helped in the development and revolution of frequency modulation (FM) in the U.S. Topics covered include the advent of commercial FM land mobile transceivers in the late 1960s, the ruling of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that man-dated new rigs for commercial users, and the FM transceivers specifically designed for amateur radio. The growth in the number of repeaters and the rise of synthesizers are also discussed.
