Locating Unused FM Radio Frequencies

| Tips

FM radio transmitters offer a convenient way to get music from your iPod to your stereo, and for some people are a perfect match for their wireless needs. If you live in an area that is home to lots of radio stations, however, it can be a real pain finding an unused frequency to take advantage of.

Instead of using trial-and-error to find the best frequencies in your area, fire up your Web browser and pay a visit to Radio-Locator. This Web site keeps track of the open FM radio frequencies in the U.S. and lists the best options in your area based on ZIP Code.


Radio-Locator lists the open FM frequencies in your area.

Before using an open frequency, be sure to double-check and verify that it really is available. The easiest way is by tuning in with an FM radio.
