Here are two links I recently found FYI.
One is for a modulator which can be fitted to a suitable old radio, to make a low power broadcasting transmitter.

The HRSA has a nice little transmitter kit so you can broadcast to all your radios without multiple aerials and your choice of program material.

JamieLee, I received my kit this afternoon and finished it in about 3 hours. I had wound the coil a few days ago.

Works like a charm, very neat circuit board. You do need to order a case and a tuning capacitor from Jaycar if you don't have something you could press into service.
I have the articles from the magazine, kindly sent by a member on here.
If you want a copy I can email them to you.
