Could you tell us what was said exactly? We're very interested to hear; and thanks for telling us! smile.gif
A friend scanned it for me... Good little blurb! Thanks for letting us know!

"Be A PC Radio Pirate
Pirate radio stations have had short life spans over the years, typically ending when the FCC visits and confiscates equipment and record collections. While pirate radio stations such as Radio Free Euphoria (hosted by Captain Ganja), Voice of the Angry Bastard and Radio Bingo can still be heard sporadically, inexpensive plug-and-play computer technology has meant a surge in unlicensed FM radio stations. With a PC-MAX card from PCS Electronics and a home PC, anyone can fire up a pirate FM station. The lowest power setting limits radio range to your house and yard. But a few more mouse clicks crank up the power to an illegal (in the U.S.) one-watt station that will reach listeners a mile away. Folks looking for a legal way to broadcast should check out Ramsey Electronic's $100 MP3 Stereo Broadcaster Kit. It can transmit your home stereo's CD player, turntable or tape deck over any frequency on the FM band. It also connects to your computer's sound card, so any sound coming from your PC will be broadcast to nearby FM radios. For swashbucklers who start their own pirate stations, be forewarned: Neighbors may call with their requests. And if a licensed station gets wind of that, it's likely to call the radio police to raid your ship. -Lazlow"
Not exactly accurate, by my reckoning. The one-watt card mentioned is for ISA bus and not manufactured anymore (the website said they have two left). The card that PCS makes for PCI bus is switchable from 20mw to 100mw. I noticed that the MP3 Broadcast Kit is not in your new catalog also. Are you discontinuing it? Somehow I think you are going to be getting a surge in orders for them. Happy Radiating.
