In this tutorial, we will be showing you the basics of how to set up a Raspberry Pi Pirate Radio utilizing the FM Transmitter software and a piece of wire.
This piece of software allows you to broadcast an FM signal through your GPIO 4 pin. This broadcast means you can set up your own little radio station.Below are all the bits and pieces that I used for this Raspberry Pi Pirate Radio tutorial, you will need an internet connection to be able to complete this tutorial.
Raspberry Pi 2 or 3
Micro SD Card
Ethernet Network Connection
30cm (11 in), 12 AWG Wire
Raspberry Pi Case
