Pretty nifty stuff!  We sometimes forget there are hams in other parts of the world that are doing good things.

Thanks for sharing!

Do they have a port for the Pi?
If not that's kind of a mute point for this group

"Do they have a port for the Pi?"

There is a "CatRadio on Raspberry Pi Install Guide" referenced on the PianetaRadio.it website for CatRadio, so likely there is a port for it.

just installed it  no rigs to control, but it installs easily and runs.  one issue in the install  they have this line to install Qt5:
sudo apt install qt5-default libqt5serialport5 libqt5serialport5-dev
there is no qt5-default package in the latest Bullseye piOS  so replace it with:

"sudo apt install qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools libqt5serialport5 libqt5serialport5-dev"

and all is good!
