Raspberry Pi Pirate Radio Station Hack (video)


If you own a Raspberry Pi mini PC and have always fancied becoming a radio DJ, you might be interested in a new Raspberry Pi mini PC hack published over on the MAKE website. That provides you with an instructions for creating your very own Raspberry Pi pirate radio station.

The hack uses just a Raspberry Pi mini PC, PiFM and a single wire and transforms your Raspberry Pi into a powerful FM transmitter with enough range to cover your home, office or school yard thanks to the PiFM software.

“PiFM software not only boldly enhances the capability of your Pi, but does so with nothing more than a single length of wire. This hack starts with the absolute minimum you need to run a Raspberry Pi — an SD card, a power source, and the board itself — and adds one piece of wire. It’s the coolest Pi device we’ve ever seen with so few materials.”

The PiFM software was originally created by Oliver Mattos and Oskar Weigl, and revised by Ryan Grassel. For more information on the new PiFM software jump over to the PiFM community website for details.
