Pocket FM V3 Launched At GMF
Pocket FM is an innovative, portable, lightweight FM radio transmitter especially designed for scenarios with unreliable infrastructure, like crisis regions, refugee camps, rural areas, or natural disasters.

On Monday, the 13th of June 2016 the third version of the broadcasting system has been launched at the Global Media Forum in Bonn.

Pocket FM has been developed by Berlin based NGO Media in Cooperation and Transition (MiCT) and has been so far in prototype testing in Syria, Iraq and Sierra Leone since early of 2015.

The control interface is kept as simple as possible, so even with very little experience in using electronic devices, you will be able to get on air within minutes.

Pocket FM is powered with 10 up to 15V, so it can be used with the included power adapter as well as with a car battery or in connection with a solar system.

Furthermore, Pocket FM includes a satellite receiver, a Wi-Fi module, a GSM/3G module and a position tracker. Using radio over satellite as audio source is the easiest and most reliable way to provide live audio feed to Pocket FM, especially in remote areas without infrastructure, as no internet connection is required.

MiCT is curently setting up an archive with free-to-air educational radio programs which can be easily retrieved with Pocket FM via Satellite and Internet.
