Doesn't that mean that, in theory at least, all FM radios would have to be
approved if you wanted to listen to a talkback radio programme where people
called in via the phone? Surely that would mean your FM radio was
(indirectly) connected to the phone system.

I would have thought it would also mean that your computer would have to be
approved if it were "indirectly" connected to the phone system via a modem.

Or is the legislation worded carefully enough to avoid this?
