iPod FM Transmitters Finally OK’d In UK
Low-range FM transmitters used to beam songs from an iPod player to a radio are now legal in the UK following a long stupid battle. The once banned products can now be sold in the UK without fear of a Bobbie smacking you up.
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. However, the the low-power FM transmitters must contain the CE mark.
