What is listened to every single day by more than 170 million people in the USA?
If you said Taylor Swift, you’d be wrong.
Let me give you a hint: It zips across mountains and terrains with a speed of 186,000 miles per second just to land in your ears.
Did you say The Radio? If you did, then you’re correct.
Today we’ll be making a do-it-yourself radio station! It’s great way to listen to your favorite tunes, use it in case of emergencies, and for any traveling expedition. It’s light, portable, and can be battery-powered!
This is one of the simplest kits to make, and you’ll be jumping with joy when it actually works to tune in to your most favorite stations! Even better – hook up your own antenna to supercharge the radio to make it tune to additional stations with crystal clear clarity!
Here’s the breakdown of the kits you can choose from:
– The beginner kit comes with an FM radio with 3 presets.
– The hobbyist kit is just like the beginner kit, but with a gorgeous blue liquid crystal display that can display up to 32 letters or digits!
The difference between these? Well the higher levels get more complex so they’ll take you a little longer. But they’re more rewarding at the end, I promise!
And don’t worry, if you don’t have any experience in reading schematics, or even electrical engineering! These beginner and hobbyist kits are designed for people with absolutely NO experience. Once you sign up, you’ll get access to an online learning portal where you’ll get step-by-step instructions, HD videos, and pictures, as well as an online community of thousands of DIYers who will help you complete the project!
So if you’re just starting, go with Beginner. But if you’re up for a little challenge, go with the hobbyist (great for determined beginners!!). Guru – just be careful. You really need some experience on this one as the Guru kit is very open-ended and will require quite a bit of initiative. Have at the Guru if you’re into DIY electronics.
This will be one of the best decisions you’ll make in your life!
