MP3-to-FM transmitters unbanned in UK
iTrip, iCast etc legal - provided they're CE certified
It's official - it's now legal in the UK to use the iTrip and other low-range FM transmitters to send songs from your MP3 player to a radio. The once banned products can now not only be sold over here but connected to iPods without the owner being nabbed by engineers sniffing out pirate radio stations.
The devices were unbanned this past Friday following a year-long attempt to change the law by UK wireless regulator Ofcom. After proposing to change the law, waiting for interested parties to comment on the proposals, drafting the legislation modification, and waiting for further comments from the public and other stakeholders, Ofcom finally altered the 1949 Wireless Telegraphy Act.
There's one catch: the only low-power FM transmitters that are now legal are those that carry the CE mark. Griffin Technology, maker of the iTrip, the first iPod-to-radio FM transmitter, received its CE certification in the Spring of 2006. ®
