Hi Iam Ian M0BXR.
Have worked with windows computers for a number of years.
For modes like WSPA and QRSS which run continuously the Raspberry Pi
should be very useful. Much better too leave on all the time amd no noisy fans in the shack.
Should be an opportunity to learn more about Linux and programming and to get some interesting projects working. At the price they are they can be built into dedicated systems.
Also interested in hardware projects which interface with the pi.
