RigPi, version 1.05 (the current production version), is now available for download from the MFJ web site.  The price for the download is $29.95.  This is the same software contained on the RigPi microSD card.  If you already have a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and don't need the Keyer or Audio boards, the download is a perfect way to get started with RigPi.

 
The RigPi image is a large file, nearly 5GB in size.  If you have a slow Internet connection, the microSD card may be a better way to go.  The RigPi microSD card is available from MFJ for $49.95.

Instructions for installing the RigPi image are contained in the download.  Download the zipped file and unzip on a PC.  You will see pdf and html versions of installation help.

This image will NOT run on a Raspberry Pi 4 or later computer.  It uses the Raspbian Stretch operating system which is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi 4.  RigPI 2 will be released soon that uses the Buster operating system which will run on a Raspberry Pi 4.  RigPi 2 will also be available for download from MFJ.  Once RigPi 2 is launched my plan is to provide the RigPi software on Github.  A full image will not be available, only the RigPi server will be on Github.
