make an ipod in to a pirate radio station

ipod fm

i thought it was clever to boost the itrip mini with my lame little hack, and change what's playing on cars next to me at stop lights, and then this project blows that out of the broadcasting waters. be sure to check with your local laws and all that before broadcasting with this "proof of concept" itrip amp.
