My commute from Virginia through DC and to Maryland has few perks. Four years ago, when FM transmitters were just starting to saturate the market, I could pick a random station, plug a FM trasmitter into an MP3 Player (Nomad Jukebox
at the time) and have my portable music with me at all times. Times sure have changed and now when I use my 3rd Gen iPod with iTrip left at the default 87.9 frequency, I will occasionally pick up other people's transmitted tunes clashing violently with my own. That comes with the territory. Yes, I have read numerous accounts of 'hacking your iTrip
,' but that frequency clashing is not all the frequent (until now). I have found a steady pirate radio station on 87.9 in-bewteen the underpass tunnels from 395 to New York Avenue. In this section, my iTrip gets pwned and I am forced to listen to mindless drivel for about 3 minutes. Griping aside, I guess I could sit here and complain or do something about it.
