Radio FM Modulator

Similar to the Radio Microphone, in this post I will show you how to build your very own radio transmitter by replacing the Microphone with a 3.5mm headphone jack. This can be used as a Radio MP3 player for your car, simply plug your phone into the 3.5mm headphone jack then tune your car radio into the same frequency as the modulator and what ever is playing on your phone will be broadcast to the car radio. So go ahead and get creative!
