Legally --Ban on MP3 transmitters is lifted click hereOfcom is legalising the use of FM transmitters that allow iPods and other MP3 players to play through car radios. Ofcom will also remove the need for a licence to use Citizens' Band radio. Sense at last ;)
Being more than a bit clueless in this area, is there potential for sitting in a traffic jam and getting other folks MP3 coming through your radio?
Yes, there is. So you could be stuck on the M25 listening o some kids 'new metal' music or something like that, without them even realising!Dows it now mean that you can broadcast music over CB?
so unless youre tailgating in normal circumstances you'd be OKAnd you'd have to have your car radio tuned to the same frequency ;)Mind I got a funny look from a couple in a white van who pulled up next to me in a traffic Jam -;)
I wonder where all these spare channels are in London, any spare channel is usually taken up by various pirate stations that have been on those frequencies for years and no one seems particularly concerned about closing them down.Bob The Nob©,It will be illegal under copyright laws to broadcast music and there still will be regulations regarding the operation of CB equipment as will the amateur licence when it becomes free.
When I saw the title, I thought Radio Caroline was returning :O)
I never went away ;-)Neither has BigL, listen on 1395KHz.
You can get Radio Caroline on Sky 0199 and BigL on Sky 0190 as well. ;-)
I've used one of these (in France, dunno if they're legal there or not) and they're useful if you're away from a big population centre but not much good in a big place where the FM airwaves are busy.
Mine was perfect for the run from Hartlepool through Northumberland into Scotlandbut as Edinburgh loomed the signal got over runso back to the radio for duration of journey ;)
can get more than 20 fm transmitters for the cost of one of those ;)
