Pi This Winter!

Raspberry Pi Microcomputer
Dec 11, 2019

A nifty tiny but powerful device that can complement any ham shack is the Raspberry Pi mico computer. The new Raspberry Pi 4 is quite an upgrade from the previous model and can run all the open source office suites, browse the Internet, and run many ham radio applications.These include packet/APRS, NBEMS/FLDIGI and associated programs, logging and rig control, echolink, and much more!

My winter projects relating to the Raspberry Pi include the fllowing:

  • TNC Pi Kit for APRS
  • Maintain Several Web Sites With Pi
  • Interface Pi With HF Rig for Digital Comms
  • Track Satellites with Gpredict
  • I'll post my progress on this web site. 73 de N1EP
