Build Your Own FM Broadcaster

Increase the range of your FM transmitter and broadcast audio around your home.

If you read “Broadcast Your iPod to FM Radio” [Hack #5] , you might have noted that the FM transmitters discussed seemed to work like very weak FM stations. Unsurprisingly, that is precisely the function of the mentioned FM transmitters. Their power, and thus range, is limited by FCC regulations. This hack details how to amplify the signal from an FM transmitter to cover a larger area.

Here’s what you’ll need to complete this hack:

  • An iPod

  • An FM transmitter

  • Various electronic components (listed later in this hack)

  • A soldering iron

  • Fearless voiding of the FM transmitter’s warranty
