(Source: NPR)

A non-profit organization in Berlin has invented a small portable transmitter that can download satellite signals and rebroadcast them on FM for Syrians to listen to on their car or household radios.

If this story sounds familiar, it’s because we posted something about the organization a few weeks ago.

    I know the company who makes these transmitters. Very inexpensive. Their prices range from 150USD to 500USD depending on the power. Only problem is in most countries you can not use them, due to the fact in developed areas they are prone to cause harmful interference. But in underdeveloped areas where it’s being used in Syria it’s fine.

    Thanks for the post. The PocketFM is an interesting little transmitter. 6 Km = around 3 3/4 miles. Has a nice heat sink too, and pretty adaptable for different types of power sources (solar, 12V battery, house current).
