FM Clear Frequency for Consumer Devices
I would like to see the FCC set aside one frequency in the FM broadcast band that would not be assigned to broadcasters. The purpose of this would be that there would be one frequency that consumers could use for GPS and other devices that communicate through the vehicle’s radio that would be free of broadcaster interference. Currently you can select a clear frequency when you start a trip but as soon as you drive a few miles you can pick up interference from a broadcast station that is now in range and have to find another clear frequency. This is not only annoying but distracts the driver from his driving and it can happen many times on a long trip. One nationwide clear frequency would solve this problem and make for safer driving.
