DIY Transmitter – Brett Ian Balogh

In this era of unprecedented media conglomeration, it has become important for the public to take media into their own hands. This workshop took on a do-it-yourself approach to broadcast media. Participants constructed their own low-power FM radio transmitters and learned about the issues of legality surrounding micro-power broadcasting as well as artistic/activist uses of the medium.
