Charlie’s Radio Station

Today the boy started asking how radio stations work so we took apart an old in-car FM transmitter and built a little radio station setup around it, all housed in a box we built and painted. Flicking the big switch at the front and talking into the microphone will see Charlie broadcasting his shows around the house and garden.

Building an FM transmitter for our home radio station

The idea is to have one of those ‘On Air’ lights (hence the big hole at the front) illuminate when there’s a show going on.
