Upload the code to an attiny45, put a 20" or so wire on pin 6 and power with 5v.  You'll need to put your radio clock close to pick up the signal best. ...

Sometimes your project requires to have smaller and cheaper devices. What you might need is the ATtiny microcontroller! For about $1 you can ge...
