Tune into iPod-FM pirate radio Oregon

Yesterday we reported that a columnist at engadget.com had written a how-to on creating your own pirate radio station using a modified iTrip mini. Today we noticed on the boing boing blog that a reader was actually doing it from his car with an iTrip and his iPod. “I’ve been running around for the past several months with this bumper sticker on my car. It’s an ink-jet job and as you can see, it’s getting a little faded. I figure that anyone that can read the bumper sticker—on the I-5, at a stop light—if intrigued could tune in and listen to whatever I’m listening to.”

Yes. To broadcast live, get Mister Microphone. It works for both PC and Mac users.

It’ll be the death of rap! (or those idiots who play it so loud you just hear their car vibrate) play a track of a high pitched screach and they’ll learn their lesson

Too bad it doesn’t work for CD players.  Most of the obnoxious people who crank their systems too loud don’t listen to the radio.
