Tech tip: FM car transmitter
Posted by: Mary Burkey
Here’s a quick tip for those of you who use a FM transmitter to listen to audiobooks on your MP3 player, iPod, or Playaway in a car without a line-in jack. Sirius Satellite Radio has a free FM Channel finder that will give you the frequency with the fewest interruptions:
SIRIUS FM Channel Finder is a free resource that you can use any time to find one or more potentially vacant FM frequencies. In most areas, we will give you a choice of up to five frequencies to try, ranked by how far away they are from other radio stations. SIRIUS FM Channel Finder can be used in the 48 contiguous states served by SIRIUS Satellite Radio.
