Another great application is to connect the circuit to your portable MP3 Player and listen to the music while in the car using your car's FM radio.

The circuit itself is designed around the popular BA1404 integrated circuit by Rohm and is tunable anywhere on the FM band between 88 to 95MHz. It incorporates a specially designed power supply which allows it to be connected to any standard 9V DC adapter without introducing the noticeable "hum" which is usually present when operating a low power transmitter through a wall adapter. The power supply uses two-stage filtering in conjunction with two RF chokes and bypass capacitors for best ripple rejection for a "hum" free operation.

The CK333 is identical (in functionality and range) to our CK222 with the main difference being that the CK333 includes a built-in power supply so that it can supplied by a 9V DC adapter instead of batteries. In addition, the CK333 has a 3.5mm stereo input jack while the CK222 has double RCA jacks for audio input.
