DIY $5 Raspberry Pi Zero PiRate Radio


Albert Einstein — ‘I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but WorldWar IV will be fought with sticks and stones’. Learn how to build simple gadgets for post-apocalyptic world. This simple DIY project turns your Raspberry Pi into a powerful FM transmitter!
