Default do it yourself fm transmitter

Someone posted a link in a thread that was to a do it yourself fm out wire. If someone can direct me to it that would be great. I looked for an hour. It was just a short tutourial that started with a 2.5 mm stereo pin and soldering a wire to it.

Thanks.

I saw here somewhere where someone bought a mono earphone from Radio Shack for maybe $3 and just cut off the earphone piece. It seemed to work out well.

That is basically what it is but I think i will need a bit more length. I don't want to disassemble my government owned work vehicle to install any type of wired fm modulator so I was going to try making an extended fm out line and wrapping it around the vehicle's antenna wire. It's worth a try.

Does your goverment owned work vehicle have a cassette deck. If so, you'll get better sound quality if you use a cassette adapter.

So far there has been nothing about DIY FM transmitter. How about buying one of the million available for Ipod etc and using that? Extending the wire till it touches is a little ghetto no?

I was not terribly clear on what I was taliking about. I was referring to the wire that goes from the car dock that extends your transmitting power. It is a small wire that goes in the FM out plug. I saw a link to a site that told you how to make one and now I can't find it.
