This is just for those of you who, like me, thought getting a Raspberry Pi to run your digi modes is just too complex or somehow 'lesser' than running on a more 'mainstream' unit. I'm very happy to say my experience was of an easy set-up, with the added advantage of the board (most of us have a spare HDMI screen and keyboard lying around), costing around 1/10th the price of a basic laptop. Also a bit more convenient to power from 5V (at 2.3Amps or so), rather than stepping up to 19V for a laptop. Overall, other than for things like games, the current Pi is now a very capable all-round computing solution. If you look up advice online, you may well find a lot of it is outdated. A number of functions are now, much more conveniently, available from the graphical interface of Raspbian (the OS), without the need for ventures into issuing obscure commands. https://mw1cfnradio.blogspot.co.uk/2018/05/more-pi.html Again, this is to encourage folks, not an invitation to troll.
