Good news if you like listening to music or podcasts on your iPod in your car and you’re in the UK:
Ofcom is legalising the use of FM transmitters that allow iPods and other MP3 players to play through car radios. The use of devices, such as Griffin’s “iTrip”, was banned in the UK as their transmissions can interfere with broadcasts by legal radio stations. However, the device and other similar accessories for MP3 players have been widely available online. Now certain FM transmitters, which can be tuned to spare frequencies, will be legal from 8 December. Ofcom will also remove the need for a licence to use Citizens’ Band radio.
Now I can legally use my iTrip!
Interesting re CB radio. I never knew you had to have a license for it in this country. But who uses CB radio these days?
