    Is there a way to use a raspberry pie for psk31 and such with a icom 7100 ?

    Sure. However--I'm trusting my memory here--I don't believe the IC-7100 has a built in sound card and USB port, so you'll want a rig interface like a Signalink.

    Anyhow, I use a Raspberry Pi 4 for digital with my Icoms all the time. Works great. :)

    That's cool, I have a Pi 4 too and an IC-7800. Which programs do you use, and do you pipe the audio through a Signalink?

    You can get a cable from Signalink for your radio.

    Connect it to the Pi using a USB cable.

    Sorry, no. You are better off using one of the precompiled ham images and asking someone that runs digital with the RPi and 7100 to get you pointed in the right direction. Get a pile of SD cards and try different image versions until you find one you like, digging into how things work helps when things break..........and they will :)

    That would be some easy money, it isn't very hard to do. You *really* need to do this yourself, it is pretty easy to do, but the few things you'll need to learn are things you'll need to know anyway to use the system and maintain it.

    Ok, which programs do you use in your Pi 4 and do you notice lag, latency, or audio stuttering with the Pi 4?

    I've used JS8Call, Fldigi, and WSJT-X. Latency? I haven't had any problems even when I'm operating the rig and computer remotely (which I usually do)...
