  • Cheap AM Radio

    I'm looking for a cheap AM radio. My aim is to be able to listen to an AM station and have GPS prompts overlaid. As there aren't many AM radio cars Garry suggested runnign a second AM radio and feeding it into the line in on the PC then I can use it as a combined audio source.

    Thinking this should be cheap... althought there aren't the nice simple head units around that there were in years gone by. Any suggestions for a cheap cheap AM radio that will connect to a car antenna and output with a connection that goes into a soundblaster line-in?

    Chris.

    Go buy a walkman that you can use a car kit with (cigarette lighter plug). Then, go to radio shack, buy a cable to go from the headphone jack to the line in on your SB. Worked for me with my alarm clock.
