I think for one reason is am radio broadcasts further. I have always got better reception on am during electrical storms, don't know why though.
Years ago lots of radios were am only so thats probably what started it and no ones thought to change it.

NEW AND IMPROVED MY AZZ! These suck. Cannot tune in and when you finally DO get some kind of music, you have to listen to 3 radio stations at the same time. SUCKY SUCKY SUCKY. GIVE ME BACK THE OLD AND UN-IMPROVED puhhhlllleeeeaaaasssseee. I am emailing them as we speak. NOW, what in the hail am I gonna do with 5 brand new PELTOR WORKTUNES that noone will wear?

Just a thought were the batteries new? I have to change my batteries about every week. When they go weak, reception sucks. I get the "three radio stations at a time thing". I only paid $25 for my Peltors, Wal Mart, so they aren't they expensive ones but they do work great as long as the batteries are changed often.

I quess I'll chime in here. This is what I do- I have a Palm pilot and I down load my fav. music and it can hold 150-200 tunes. I put the palm next to me on my z in a little foam-type bag and i run the cord up under my shirt and and put ear plug head phones in and then my Peltors on and I.m good to go. Yes no weather, but I change up my tunes once a month. I also use my Palm for info on my accounts that Im mowing and e-mails and such. Love the thing. Im still learning it
