There are some "Mini FM Transmitters" that will broadcast on any FM
frequency while others only use 88.1, 88.3, 88.5, and 88.7

In many cases these are powered by a couple AAA batteries, but I just
noticed at the Radio Shack site that they have an "iTrip mini" that
doesn't need them: "iTrip mini gives you the best possible performance
because you can choose any empty station from 87.7 to 107.9....The
iTrip mini does not need batteries. It receives a tiny amount of power
directly from the iPod Mini", etc.

I drove on Rt 128 in Lynnfield recently and heard signals, most likely
from these
mini transmitters, go in and out on various frequencies--including 87.9!
