    RadioPi, is another Hamradio Raspberry Pi OS image, for......linux dummies.. :)

    RadioPi is optimized for remote control and field operation. You can just flash it into a SD card, and run it on a Raspberry Pi computer directly.

    RadioPi is desgined to:
    • Control your rig, run FT8, log QSO, and upload to LoTW.
    • Control your rig at home, when you take a walk in a park.
    • Try to make QSO by SDR and satellites.
    • Go to field operation without your laptop computer.
