Okay. I have changed my order to a NON stand alone device v3.6. HIHI. I have a ordered a Canakit Rasb 4B 8gb pi kit. Now I need a few 32gb sd cards. I'l be in-touch and keep you all abreast on my progress if you don't mind? TY 73

Vince,

If you wanted to use APRS and Winlink on a RaspPi perhaps you should re-order your TNC to the one that plugs into the RaspPi GPIO header.  I'm not sure about APRS or PAT, but the PiGate software just assumes you have a TNC board plugged in.  You can change things, but that means you'll have to make changes in the software.  I can't speak for PAT or APRS, it might be easier.  That is if your focus is Winlink and APRS.

My main focus would be Winlink2000 and APRS. IF that helps? TY 73

Vince,

You'll want to get a board with the Teensy 3.6 chip.  To be able to do packet, the 3.2 version will work, but if ARDOP or any other modes ever become available for the Teensy, the 3.6 version with more memory and slightly faster processor will be necessary.

The boards will come already configured to run 1200 baud packet, so you can use APRS or PAT or the PiGate software without any modifications.  These are all Raspberry Pi software suites.  APRS is for, well APRS, and PAT and PiGate are for sending email through the Winlink2000 network.

The PiGate software comes as a complete OS image.  The others can be installed on your RaspPi.

Also, depending upon what operating system you install on the RaspPi, you will be able to run commands to connect to a local packet BBS and do the BBS thing.  I would recommend installing the latest Raspbian OS which is designed specifically for the RaspPi.

If you want to use the RaspPi for FLDIGI or WSJTX you won't need to TNC.

Got me interested and curios 

Can someone explain what the different models shown on Etsy. I am going to buy one but as newbie and starting out which one is best for a starter?  I have a Ras pi 3b+

Also what software to use/install, would be good for a starter and newbie like me?
