Build an open source FM radio station with your Raspberry Pi. via github

FMBerry is a piece of software that allows you to transmit FM radio with your Raspberry Pi.

How does it work?

It uses the Sony-Ericsson MMR-70 transmitter, which was originally intended for use with Sonys Walkman cellphones from early 2000s. You can get these for really cheap from Amazon.

What do I need to build this?

MMR-70 transmitter
Raspberry Pi (Model A/B – 256MB or 512MB)
Soldering equipment (soldering iron and some solder)
Cable for connecting to your Raspberry Pis GPIO port (old IDE cable does work fine!)
The hardware is explained here: HARDWARE.md

Installation

This software was developed under Raspbian Wheezy 2013-02-09.
