The thing about AM is it travels farther.
Another thing is that a crystal radio can receive AM. I read oncet about a crystal radio who's coil was copper tubing winded 3ft in diameter, and capacitors made from bottles of water in a tub of water. It would drive an 8" speaker.

AM in high fidelity compared to a PRC-6 walkie-talkie.
The AN/PRC-6 operates using wide-band FM on a single crystal controlled frequency in the 47 to 55.4 MHz low band VHF band.
