Start with Pi #raspberrypi

I have 2 pi's. A 3 and a 4 with a touch screen.
Not much done with them until now.

Now want to setup a "HAM" machine.
Flrig/digi,wsjtx,js8call,jtdx would recomendet. Most run with Yaesu radios.
Mb uBITX 3 and 4 if applicable.
There are lot of different instructions - so I lost my orientation which I should choose.
Any recommondations for me which and where to start?

Usually work with Linux Mint 20.3.

KM4ACK has made a batch file program that allows you to build up a Pi for ham use with a variety of programs you can choose. Look for "Build-a-Pi" or BAP. He has a YouTube video that takes you through it step by step and includes your choice of things like WSJT-X and Fldigi. It even allows use of a cheap GPS dongle to automatically get your gridsquare and time.

I started with HamPi but switched over to Build-a-Pi by KM4ACK. You really can't go wrong with either but my preference, for what I like to do, is Build-a-Pi. It's an incredible ham radio software installer and the amount of videos the creator puts out is astounding. He has a great piece of software and a great knack to teach. I would recommend watching this video. It explains the software very well.
With either choice, you will spend less time resolving dependencies and compiling source code and more time operating - it's really up to individual preference.
