No typo:


It may not be according to the rules to connect an antenna and operate it.
So we can replace it by a Si4705 (pin compatible receiver only).


The idea behind such chips is to send sound and RDS messages to your
FM car radio. I.e. have your radio display a caller ID or navigation hints.

I think there are already some driver fragments in Linux/Staging.
