Well looks like Ofcom is getting things sorted out for these devices now.

From the 8th of December short range personal radio transmitters like the iTrip will no longer be illegal.

You also will not need a licence for citizens band radio anymore.

Though there is a slight wrinkle
However, many devices currently on the market will remain illegal as they do not meet the legally required technical specifications and could interfere with radio broadcasts.

The new amendments will also reflect a European standard on the low-power transmitters.

All approved transmitters will carry a CE mark indicating approval for sale in the European Union.

Hooray, I can use the one I already have without fear of breaking the law :p

I remember walking into a store in Birmingham and asking for an iTrip only to be told they weren't legal, thankfully, eBay to the rescue :p
