What is Broadcast your Podcast?
BYP enables and encourages podcasters to break out of the net and into local radio space.
BYP offers podcasters the chance to transmit their podcasts on FM. BYP units are handmade FM transmitters made by BYP following the circuit design of micro radio pioneer Tetsuo Kogawa. By connecting a BYP unit to your computer or mp3 player podcasts can be transmitted on FM to your neighbourhood.
BYP is an idea and a technology. The idea is to allow people to hear podcasts without the need for expensive equipment or fast internet connections. The technology is the BYP transmitter. By using a BYP transmitter podcasts can be broadcast on FM for anyone to hear using a simple radio tuner. BYPs strategy is to distribute these units for free to podcasters so they can extend their practice, reaching beyond the net and into local radio space.
To enable this BYP has designed several self contained transmitting units that are capable of broadcasting in a radius of about 100 meters. Transmitting on FM with these is as easy as plugging them into an audio out of a computer or MP3 player. The units are designed by Amsterdam artist Lotte Meijer to be robust and portable. Fitting easily in your pocket and powered by standard batteries BYP can be used at home or as a mobile broadcast unit.
