    The Silicon USB FM has been discussed at some length:

    The VB code in that doesnt seem to be "for" the radio that you get, only a simple USB test to see that its hooked up. Doesnt allow station scanning, preset stations, etc from what i c on the main menu.

    HQCT is $150.00 vs $40.00. Im not going to spend that much money just to have AM/FM when i can get it for $40.00.

    I really would like that RadioShark one. But its only interfaced with the software it comes with OR that RoadRunner mod.

    ok. well as long as you are ok with spending $40 for something that will hardly get any reception. If i wereyou i'd purchase something that you could return and ride around with it for a week or so and see if you are happy with the results
