Looking for BETA Testers of HamPi
After six months of development on my spare time, I'm excited to announce that I've completed primary development of my automated Raspberry Pi software image for Ham Radio, now called HamPi. I hope to have a beta build available for this Memorial Day weekend.
If you have one or more of the following SDRs, please note in your response that you have them, because I lack the hardware to test: FUNcube dongle pro+, PlutoSDR, OsmoSDR, or Red Pitaya SDR.
When responding, please do not fudge your answers. SEND DIRECTLY TO w3djs@.... I will not necessarily read responses to this thread. I need people with as many varieties of equipment and experience (or lack of) as possible:
Model(s) of Raspberry Pi:
Raspberry Pi Monitor resolution(s):
Raspberry Pi Accessories:
Model(s) of radios connecting to Pi:
Do you have a GPS for the Pi?
Will you be doing CW with the Pi?
Experience level with Linux [Beginner, Moderate, Expert]:
What would you like to do with your Raspberry Pi with the HamPi image?
Would you prefer a "LITE" (small) image with just ham radio apps installed, or a "FULL" (large) image with ham radio apps plus desktop apps like LibreOffice installed?
Would you be willing to host the release image via BitTorrent?
Anything else you'd like to mention?
This isn't just an automated build of the image, compared to the manually built one from last October, but it includes these changes. Here's the Changelog:
Renamed project to HamPi
Converted manually-created (handmade) image creation to Ansible-created (automated) image creation
Set up ~95% of software projects to automagically download latest version from Internet
Add installation of x86 apps (versus ARM apps) in some cases for use with Raspbian x86
Automatic upgrade of Raspbian packages and cleaning apt cache
Initial Chromium Bookmarks for Ham Radio
Configuration of image to use 64-bit kernel
