Definitions for "AM stereo"
AM stereo is any of a number of mutually incompatible techniques for broadcasting two-channel audio in the mediumwave band in a manner that is compatible with receivers designed for standard amplitude modulation. There are two main classes of systems: independent sideband (ISB) systems, promoted principally by American broadcast engineer Leonard Kahn; and quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) multiplexing systems (conceptually closer to FM stereo).
