Those low-power FM transmitters used with iPods that are commonplace in NORTH AMERICA will finally be legal in the UK after a ruling by radio regulator OFCOM. The devices will be allowed beginning on DECEMBER 8th, as long as they meet EUROPEAN UNION standards for limiting interference.
In addition, OFCOM has eliminated the requirement that users have a license to use CITIZENS BAND radios, citing a need to cut the administrative burden imposed by the previous regulations.
