PiFM and the Multicore Pi's

A project log for Anyfesto

Any manifestation of a meeting - in the schools or in the streets - is going to need clear communication. Anyfesto helps that happen.

Stop, start, restart, restop, restart.

The multicore RPis do not work well or at all with the PiFM code. Some folks are attempting to fix this. I nthe mean time I have moved the FM section of the project to a less mobile solution but one that works for what I am using it for.

The PiZero seems to run PiFM fine. As I have just one and it is on use on another project it might be a while before I get to reintergrating PiFM into Anyfesto.

One item I am working with is the FM Module from Adafruit. It is small, breadboard friendly and will fit nicely in the cases I am using. 
Initial test are good though I am not all that happy with the range.

Adafruit has done a lot of the leg work in getting code snippets for most of the functionality.
