*sigh*  Boy,  this  brings  back  memories. *smirk* My  dad  had  this  FM
radio-based  headphones set. After he had broken it I took the transmitter
and attached it to my stereo, using the headphone jack. In principle, this
could  be  connected  to /any/ device with a headphone  jack  for  output.
Anyhoo...  that  transmitter fed an RCA tuner that I already had. I  could
run  it  on  batteries while I was in the garden,  wittout  draining  much
battery life. So essentially I could tune in, using a radio, to any device
in  the  house, rather than rely on commercials-infested air channels,  as
well as music I never favoured.

This  goes  quite  a few years back (last decade), so at  the  time,  this
seemed like a cunning idea to a mid-teen such as myself. *smile*



They have become a lot smaller and they look much hipper than what I had...

With kind regards,
