MP3 Radio

Published: Wed November 29, 2006  News Feed
Ofcom (the UK communications regulator) has announced that the use of certain low power FM transmitters, which wirelessly connect MP3 players and other personal audio devices to radios and in-car entertainment systems, will be legal for use in the UK from 8 December 2006.

Equipment previously available carries a high risk of interference to other broadcast services. However, in response to consumer demand Ofcom has led negotiations in Europe to develop a harmonised technical approach designed to limit the potential of interference to other wireless devices.

The regulations will also remove the need for a Citizens’ Band radio licence, reducing the administrative and cost burden for around 20,000 licensees using these short-range transmitters.

However only Equipment carrying the CE mark, indicating approval for sale in the European Union, will be allowed. Any other equipment not carring this mark will remain illegal.
