Make your own car-based pirate radio station

+ Technology that lets you broadcast your own radio station from your car, to be picked up by anyone within a 30-mile radius. I mean, sure, the idea's kind of silly if you were trying to do a legitimate radio station, but what about more practical applications? How about a group of friends or family members, for example, making a road trip in several different vehicles, using roadcasting to synchronize where to take food and gas breaks? Some of the goofiest ideas in the world can suddenly seem pretty smart, when you take a minute to think of new uses for them. (Thanks to MAKE magazine for pointing this out.)
