Subject: Advice on small FM Radio using Rockbox

Advice on small FM Radio using Rockbox

I am totally blind. I want to use Rockbox on a shirt pocket sized FM radio so that I can use the controls and also set and select prefix radio stations. The smaller the device the better so long as reception is good.

Here is my understanding of the current position:
* Rockbox works mostly on MP3 players.
* The Sansa Clip devices used to play MP3, had an FM radio and were beautifully small. However, these are no longer on sale.
* The Rockbox firmware doesn't work with the current Sansa Sports devices.
* I am not aware of any small device with both FM and AM radio onto which Rockbox can be installed.

If the device had an AM radio and/or an MP3 player, that would be a bonus. However, the FM radio is my primary wish.

Has anyone any recommendations as to which device might suit and where I might get one?


Take care,

Gerry Ellis
