    Is there an app out there so that you can access below 88.1? I know this seems like a stupid question but it would be nice to use my evo with our Japanese translation system that broadcasts on 72.1.

    I sumbled across this just after I read your reply...
    CRC Online Mux - FM TwoO
    I've been playing around with it on my Samsung Galaxy S for the last 20 minutes and it's worked brilliantly.
    I had to change the "Region" setting to "Other" and that allowed me to change the "Frequency band". The options are "87.5-108MHz", "76-108MHz" and "76-90MHz" however I found that when I selected the "76-90MHz" option I was able to go far lower (into the negatives). Not sure if it's a design flaw or glitch but to be honest I don't really care, it's working for me :)

    Nice find but not compatible with evo and our translator broadcasts at 72.2.

    You're not using that in the United States, I presume?

    Shame, but ah well. It does work for me so at least one of us is happy :)

    I don't think you'll ever find one here in the US. 72MHz here is not broadcast audio, but hobby RC. In fact, I'd suspect that broadcasting of any sort on 72MHz is a violation of law here. Usually that stuff is restricted to less than a watt out.

    I am not a lawyer and all that, by the way.

    FM is called FM because it operates between specific frequencies and not below 88.1
