Hi Bryce,

I own the "http://www.ccrane.com/fm_transmitter.asp" and
can *not* recommend this or any other legal device for car use in
Europe - they're just too weak.

The thing sounds good, but only on a really free FM frequency.
In the car my radio picks up extra junk on almost all frequencies
which makes it unpractical to use. It's pretty cool for kitchen and
workplace radios, if you place your jukebox right next to the radio.

Martin
