And another do I get the radio to stop on a station that does not have a station on it already?
I have heard of many people with iTrips having this exact problem -- can't find a free station or crap reception. I didn't like mine much, and was glad we have at least an Aux port.

I was reading that the problem is with the iTrip's transmitter. Some people have pulled their's apart and got the little wire out which is the aerial and let it hang outside the case, and had much more success. But I wouldn't go fiddling unless I was prepared to break it.

I also hate the way iTrip changes stations... clunky.
