How To Set Up a Raspberry Pi as a NOAA Satellite Receiver with RTL-SDR

For Project TIROS, I’m building a briefcase-style NOAA satellite receiver using upcycled parts centered around a Raspberry Pi. In this video, I will walk you through the process of installing the necessary software components to use the RTL-SDR module on a Raspberry Pi for NOAA satellite reception.

element14 Presents: Project Caroline — Raspberry Pi Pirate Radio Station

Matthew relives some of his youthful hacking by dabbling in a little “pirate radio” broadcasting. In this video, he builds a handheld FM transmitter from some salvaged parts and a Raspberry Pi. The Pi uses a piece of software to convert wav files to frequency-modulated signals emitted from GPIO pin 7. To improve transmission quality and prevent undesired signals, Matthew also designs and builds a band pass filter and seals everything in a shielded case.

B 98.5 FM: “Listen At Work Payoff” (circa 1992)

B98.5FM-Atlanta used to run a contest during the weekday 9-5 slots, to increase listenership during sweeps, giving away $1000 every hour.

Anyone in the A know if they still do this? I remember it was a big deal back then!

The U.S. NPR Podcast Affected Voice

As someone who listens to NPR podcasts on a regular basis, I can’t help but laugh heartily and agree.

All my favourite US podcasts are being ruined by this universally adopted affectation. Planet money, This American Life, Radiolab, Startup.. Why? Why would you do this? Please stop. It’s so boring.

Airheads Trailer

I feel like I really missed an opportunity to do an Airheads-style holdup of a radio station to save the rock format.

Oh, God! I just heard about Project 9-6-1! I’m sorry, Atlanta. I’m so, so sorry.
