Hello! Totally new to Pi world. I helping fellow ham set up Pi4 to run fldigi and Wsjtx controlling a KX2 into a 80-10 OCFD antenna.
My plan is to try and load Rasbian then figure out how to install wsjtx/fldigi. Is there something like a "software center" in rasbian where I search for the two apps, then download the packages and click to install? Is this how it works?
Sorry for being sort of cluess here. I have worked with Ubuntu/atomicPi/uBITX, but never rasbian/Rpi4/KX2. So this new stuff make my palms clammy. Especially with someones else gear. Whannn.
Also, it looks like the Rpi4 doesn't have a RTC, which not an issue if you boot on the network and it picks up the smpt time. True?
Plan to use an external USB sound card for audio I/O.
The KX2 has a separate USB cat cable that does the PPT and freq change, etc. when hooked up to a win10 laptop. Does the RPi4 work the same way? We just use the cat control cable between the Rpi4 and the KX2?
I think I know how to configure wsjtx/fldigi once they come up... fingers crossed.
Thank you for any help!!!
