    The main reason for needing to plug-in your headset is for an antenna.
    Without an antenna plugged in your FM radio is not going to receive much.

    Unable to answer your original question, sorry. The antenna connection
    could possibly be one of the audio lines, but I don't know for sure.

    I'd say that one of the audio lines doubles as the aerial.
    If i plug my headphones into my NGage, the radio reception improves or
    worsens depending upon the orientation of the headphones lead.

    I've heard that you can take a 2.5mm stereo jack-plug and solder a (short)
    piece of wire to act as an aerial to one of the terminals and hey presto...!
    The jack-plug is detected and the radio operates and of course you get a
    reception because of the make-do aerial.
    That's a hack i guess was intended for NGage owners but the theory is the
    same for your 6200.

    Probably correct, and from there I'd think you just choose loudspeaker mode
    once the radio is on
