and while it’s good to be compliant with the regs for all bands, baby monitors and cordless phones have pretty much abandoned that freq, all that’s left are kids toy walkie talkies, as far as know. If you were to do some experimenting there and slipped a bit, who’s to complain?
Not much on the pre-emphasis which would be needed for music,…[Read more]

1. Be more specific in your post title. People are busy, and scan the topics for something interesting or that they can help with. A bunch of threads titled “Another Zara Radio Question” doesn’t really capture anyone’s interest, as you have already figured out, I hope.

Actually, that sounds like a cool content solution. My CD based MP3 player (iRiver) will happily accept standard format MP3 playlists. These can be generated with a number of applications, but I’m lazy and I just use WinAmp. Just create a playlist in WinAmp and save it.
