Hey all, just found a possible solution for FM AND AM radio in the car.
Check out this USB to ISA adapter, plus the specific one I am linking to, is an external case to hold the ISA card.
You could use it in conjunction with the Cadet PC Radio ISA card...
What do you guys think? Possibility?
ummm.... *must resist flaming you*
Some radio programs that people enjoy listening to are only on AM. Such as a large number of talk shows which AM is perfectly suited for. A lot of sports radio is on AM as well.
I too am looking for a good AM PC solution, but I'm to lazy to deal w/ a USB isa bridge.

I dont live in the States...and I wouldn't pay the equivalent $15/month for it either...Originally Posted by aleromaster
I know I said IF plus its not $15 its $10 plus I havn't listened to FM or AM since I got it when they first debuted to the north east us

I know there are quite a few people that want AM, don't knock the fact that we want it, we just do, even tho XM is availble to some people and some people love it. I am not knocking it, just wanting to show people solutions for AM.
Looks like your talking $150 for AM radio since the converter is ~$110 depending which model you get. I'm sorry it's not worth it. You'd be better off getting a shortwave radio with the capability to hook to the serial port, then you could write software to control that radio. Then you could really get some signals- shortwave, police scanners, FM/AM etc...Originally Posted by orangewhip
