    The MFJ-1234 is a station server that include the RigPi software package. This allows you to remotely control your amateur radio station via any web browser on any platform (iPhone IOS, Android, PC, etc.). You can also use it as a station computer to make digital modes like the FT8 or even for logging your QSOs. This is base on a Raspberry Pi 3, to which they incorporated an audio card and an electronic keyer. You can therefore interface virtually any HF radio.

    plug it in to rig, and GO ?
    Or is there 4 days worth of downloads, drivers, cable issues, more downloaded drivers, calls to MFJ, 13 hours of scanning forum posts while waiting for MFJ tech support to email you back with correct driver for YOUR modern, common mass market YaesIcoWood ?

    Easy setup if you have some brain cells. If you can get a ham license, you can use this device. I love it.

    Do it yourself rather than easy mode. Not a thing MFJ or their affiliates sells that I would buy.

    Hi Pascal,

    Nice review!
    I had a similar 1 hour experience getting the RigPi up and running.
    My first exposure to your channel was when I was searching for remote operation options a year ago.
    Your Technician and DXer video came up in the search and I viewed it. It is the ONLY Ham video that my wife would sit through and we both loved it.
    She is Canadian by birth and said "no surprise, that is how Canadians treat each other".

    I have had my RigPi for about 4 months works ok around the house but my internet provider, the only one in may area does not allow port forwarding.
    So I can not used VNC or any program that needs two way remote control. So check out you provider before you get one if you want to run remote

    I bought one. Tried to make it work on my FTDX101MP. Gave up and took it back to dealer. Ill wait for it to become more user friendly.
