Classic FM

Classic FM is a term that describes listening devices that have a permanently fixed or adjustable, but fixed gain settings.


Two Types of Classic FM 


  • Fixed-channel transmitters transmit on a single, set  channel (FM frequency) that cannot be changed. 
  • Fixed-channel systems are frequently used in settings where students do not need to change channels during the day, such as when no other students use personal FM in the school.


  • Variable-channel personal FM systems are set to a specific default channel that can be temporarily changed to allow users from different classrooms to temporarily receive a signal from a common channel. (Default channel is restored as soon as the power to the receivers is stopped)
