Build An Open Source FM Radio Station With Your Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
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?
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
This software was developed under Raspbian Wheezy 2013-02-09.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
