I wanted to see if I could make a field companion Raspberry Pi for Data modes - I would never lug my laptop into the bush.
raspberry pi 3 with inbuilt wifi chip
USB GPS dongle
USB sound card
ZLP USB radio interface
WSJT-X on RC1.9 for FT8 etc
Winlink using PAT - telnet & ARDOP at this stage
APRS via Xastir and Direwolf
Logging using CQRLog - issues with database - working on that
GPS updates onboard time - needed for Data modes and logging as well as GPS for APRS
How do you use it?
Well when the Pi is near a wifi network it knows it connects when it is not - say on your favourite summit - it creates a hotspot allowing headless control by any VNC device - tablet, phone etc.

Sadly there is still one app / mode I can not use on the pi as of yet - HF APRS - there is however option to use DROIDPSK on the tablet and use PSK63 within the app.
I note OH8STN is using almost the exact set up as well.
