2) Kriss, I believe that is Synchronous AM detection
mode. Phase lock to the carrier and use that to provide carrier
for the demodulation process. It is nice for selective fading
conditions. So SAM may be appropriate to his situation.

I see some things on your photo that might make your SDRC
experience more enjoyable. It appears you are trying to listen to
an AM HF BC station on 6975 kHz.
1) The audio passband is not quite right (operator error), it
should be centered on the carrier of the AM signal (red arrows).
2) You have sinusoidally amplitude-modulation (SAM) turned on, it's easier to tune
in AM mode due to simply aligning the center of the audio
passband atop the carrier (yellow arrow)
3) You also have the independent sideband adjustment turned
on (green arrow). Unselect it and just use a filter of +/-5.0kHz
for most HF BC stations.
You can add a splash of color (colour in UK speak hi hi) by
hitting 'View', and 'Colour', and choose a pallete. My other image
is using "SpectraView" color pallete. The station is a pirate
AM BC station called Mix Radio International, so the bandwidth is
not a standard 10kHz signal.
