Re: Odroid XU-4 or?
I have fun with SBCs but I don't regret recently switching to a
more full blown system.
I was lucky to have an underutilized Intel NUC in the shack. It's
not new. I believe it is a 7th generation processor, dual core,
not the quad. Ubuntu was an easy install. The CPU tests as being
about the same, maybe slightly better (~10%), than the eBay used
machine that Rob mentioned here a couple months ago, though I
think the NUC is still more expensive (though probably less power
A major motivator for me was that decoding FST4W with WD will be,
per Rob, considerably more CPU intensive.
I literally haven't touched the NUC since the first time I ran WSPRDaemon after the install. Except to use the display to show PSK Reporter or wspr.rocks maps while WD runs in the background.
God bless the SBCs but I'm not going back.
