This project is about building simple fm radio controlled by arduino. Surfing the Internet, i have faced great fm radio module, rda5807 that supports RDS sygnal receiving. I have thought it is very god idea to play with this module build own fm radio that can have custom features. Furthemore, the radio can be powered by Li-ion rechargeable battery and equipped with a interesting usb charger.
The nokia 5110 display, i believe, is the good choice for the radio beacuse it is well-readable, easy to use, customable and has low-power requiremetents that helps increase the battery life.
