  • D-Link USB FM Radio

    How much is this thing worth?

    I found some on eBAY but the ones that shipp worldwide goes for up to 65$

    I think this is a little bit pricy for my taste. Never the less the D-link radio is the only radio supported in Medicar. The only thing stopping me from installing my Carputer now is the fact that I can't listen to the morning show on the radio while driving to work

    But 65$ seems like a lot for a small piece of hardware that most people say suck #%"#!

    How bad is it?

                I just sold a extra one I had on eBay for $35 shipped.

                I didn't like the recpeption on this one. I'm going to try other brands.

                    Seth's product?

                    What is Seth's product? Does it work with the D-Link USB FM?

                    I still have one in my car. Just had a extra in the house that I sold.

                          One option is to get ahold of a Icom PCR-100.

                          It's a pc controlled scanner, it covers everything from 0.2Khz to 1.3Ghz, AM/FM/WFM etc.

                          The only downside is that I haven't found the specifications for the serialcommands yet, but there is atleast two programs that are written by none-icom people. The first is TalkPCR and the second is java-radio (I lost the URL).

                          I will try to install this in my upcoming carpc and are planning to write a driver program for linux.

                          It should be nice if I complete it, FM radio, POLICE, Analouge phones etc all in the same box

                              Actually I think it does... but have to check to make sure.

                              I have a PCR-100 lying around so I will add it to my setup anyway, nice to listen to the cops
