Re: B+ or 3B+ or 4
Well I am assuming you have a 2 B+, what my other Pi is, and it does run on some Wifi dongles. I have
an old TP-Link slow, and a newer one also is faster. What I have found is that included with the Raspian
Stretch and now Buster does not have the driver for the wifi. I
must hook up the eth0 wired and
do the update/upgrade to bring in the needed drivers and what
all. Then it works well on wifi.
I haven't yet tried FS8Call or those digital modes yet, but plan on trying them. I do compile and
run most of the Fldigital suite of softwares on it and they work fine, but I expect it might get be
able to be overloaded. I may keep mine for later conversion to a dedicated ham service later.
I have the new Pi 4 with 4GB ram, and plan to try to use it to replace my old laptop. I also will
I think at this price get another for ham use for use in the
field. My home is just not suitable
for ham work here. Well I do some VHF operation from the mobile in the drive way now and then.

I have a Pi B+ (no WiFi). Has anyone used a B+ (not a 3B+) with WiFi dongle and if so how well does it run (looking to run FS8Call at a minimum)? Or is a more rewarding path to simple get a Pi 3 or 4?
