    Here we take a look at the Radioberry, a Radio PiHat for the Raspberry Pi design by Johan PA3GSB. The Radioberry is based on the successful Hermes Lite 2.

    Good stuff. I have a 4 sitting around too. Now I have something to do with it.

    5:25 onwards...is that AGC pumping ? or overloading or other ? ...either way it don't look good IMO....also someone mentioned on the YT comments regarding it being connected via Ethernet...why ? (was it a remote connection/screen or other) as i'd like to take something like this away from the shack (mobile/portable/hotel)

    Looks like fun, but I can't (quickly) find any information on availability or price. I can see one vendor in ebay offering bare PCBs ar around £10, but those are two large SMD packages to hand solder...

    Thats what Hamradio is about. New experimental equipment and innovations to tests and develop. Seems like to be, when Linux started in the 90s. Everybody can do something and discuss about, to get on further software and mostly hardware advancement. Modern Opensource ambitions for new solutions.

    Looks to me like lightning strikes. I have an Elad FDM-DUO and see the same effect on my band view waterfall. If you look at the waterfall you see the high energy wideband spikes. We have had a lot of lightning storms in the UK and around the near continent over the last few days.

    Personally I think the performance looks pretty good. Pity the A/D convertors are not higher resolution. Good AGC will be the key prior to the A/D convertors to offer decent dynamic range.

    That is pretty pricey for what it is. If I didn't already have similar I would probably pull the trigger.

    Radioberry is remarkable for what it does for that price. It is FPGA based direct up/down conversion transceiver board that fits on top of a Raspberry Pi. There are versions of firmware which can be used for decoding FT8 concurrently on 8 bands. There is a very active discussion group:

    SparkSDR works well with the above:

    I see a listing on amazon for about 150 bucks. Is the hand soldering worth that much LOL ?

    Great stuff. I already have a Hermes Lite II but this just forced me to buy a Radioberry to go with my new Raspberry Pi 4, we can never have enough radios.

    Got one from Amazon for ~$120 looks like the price is going up :( Got it working with RP4 using SDR console on a windows VM. Looks like a neat project to play around with. Enjoy the tech minds content.

    Seems to be out of stock at both Amazon and AlienExpress!
