Create Your Own Radio Broadcast From an Itrip

Introduction: Create Your Own Radio Broadcast From an Itrip

In this you'll have a working radio "station" of sorts. the range won't be great but it'll work for everyday use.

For this you'll need

-ipod
-itrip and software
-antenna or length of wire
-soldering gun (optional but recommended)
-hot glue gun (optional)
-wire stripper (helpful)

Step 1: Expose Antenna

On the top of your itip min you'll notice a sticker like white covering if you pry this up you'll expose the antenna lift this up but be careful if you rip it out your screwed.

Step 2: Expose and Solder

Next take the antenna and very carefully remove a bit of insulation from it exposing the wire within. Wire strippers would be useful here but you can use a knife.

Next with your old antenna solder it to the itrip antenna to form a larger antenna.

if you don't have a solder gun you can use some electrical tape but i recommend a solder gun.

an antenna can be substituted for bit of old wire wound around the groves of a wood screw to form an exceptionable coil. make sure to leave a tail on top. this can be slipped in to a fast food drink straw to provide a case.

Step 3: Finish

finally hot glue the whole assembly to the back of your itrip to form a nifty looking device make sure to cover the contact point between the itrip and the antenna with glue to prevent falling part.

    well if you were to amp up the power sufficiently then yes but it's illegal to broadcast more than 200ft or something so just make sure that its covert
