    Is there a way to get the FM radio to go down to around 72MHz and/or up to 153MHz or 160MHz? If it matters, I'm using CyanogenMod 12.1 right now.

    Just curious but what is it that you can listen to at those freq's below and above the FM band ? Amatur radio or HAM bands?

    In theory if you can set your own frequencies you could listen to cops pilots Taxi truckers

    Nice idea but our Volt doesn't support OTG. Or at least not yet, no one has been able to turn it on.

    I think that only works for Samsung ROMS, I could be wrong though. Also, the directions that are given set the frequency range to 76MHz to 108MHz... It might or might not let you specify anything outside of that range, and even if it did, the FM radio app would have to let you go to that frequency as well. Have you tried it yet?

    I'm trying to eavesdrop on the walkie talkie radio system at my high school (and the bus communication system), if I find the frequencies I might purchase a raspberry pi and set up something to record it.

    I know the moto g uses the same processor as the volt and had some issues with it for a little while, could our situation be similar? I would be willing to use something like that if it worked.

    How could we enable OTG? I think it would have to be done through the kernel

    I think that means software wise it's supported but I might be wrong

    When I get home from work I will give it a try I know on stock rooted I could not get it to work.I know Spock1104 did a custom kernel for stock Rom that he states that it could not be enabled because of power issues

    What if a Y-OTG cable was used?

    Just to make sure I understand the picture correctly you're trying to power the device separately and just have a data connection to your Android device

    Not my picture... Was just establishing the look of the y cable.. But all in all that is what I meant.

    OTG now works on the LG Volt, I figured out how! You can buy a RTL2838U tuner and use any number of Google Play Store apps to tune to a lot of radio frequencies. I demonstrated it in my video on the thread about it.
