Thanks to a hat tip from the Southgate ARC, I discovered that the excellent MagPi magazine has featured a number of ham radio projects in this month.
I’ve outlined below a list of the projects with page numbers–note that many are simply summaries that link to full project notes in previous editions:
- Page 52: Pictures from space via ham radio
- Page 71: ADS-B flight tracker (we also have a short tutorial here)
- Page 72: WSPR transmitter
- Page 73: Remote SDR scanner
- Page 74: Digital voice hotspot
- Page 75: Satellite tracking
- Page 75: APRS IGate
I highly recommend downloading each issue of MagPi–it’s a brilliant, informative magazine and is chock-full of projects and ideas for Pi fans of any age.
I’m a big fan of the Raspberry Pi and use it for a number of applications. This issue has encouraged me to give WSPR a go and perhaps even build a DV hotspot in the near future.
Raspberry Pi kits are quite affordable–Amazon has a massive selection from bare-bones units to full packages which include everything you need to get started. I’m a fan of both Canakits and Vilros.
I also purchase Pi systems, accessories, and hats from AdaFruit.
