OpenFM’s Open source radio transmitter –

When Adapted Consulting’s co-Founder, Frederic Renet couldn’t find a commercial radio that was energy efficient, easy to repair and affordable, he decided to build his own. These requirements were crucial for where he was installing radios in rural Africa. Based on that first model, Fred has designed a new radio that we call “Open FM”.

Adapted’s OpenFM radio kit is a low power, affordable open source solution created for use in remote areas. The system is robust and was designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, including high temperatures, dust and humidity. It has been optimized to be energy efficient, allowing it to operate using solar power and so is particularly well suited for rural environments that lack dependable electricity.
