Cool project by cshields on Libre Space forums. The tip was sent in by Eleftherios. They wrote:

An awesome contributor over the Libre Space community forum
made a wall-mounted SatNOGS ground-station. Since it is wall mounted he used
a Stego-board and added several displays on to monitor his station without
need to power on his laptop.

From the post:

I remembered a Stegoboard 105 kit I had purchased a while back, and with the new pi4 out, figured this would make for a good time to rebuild my ground station. What resulted is a pretty cool wall-mounted ground station

I quickly realized that I needed to start thinking three-dimensionally, as the top board would provide more mount points. The top board would also have items mounted on both sides (as the screen would be front-facing), so this also meant arranging the order in which the screws were added. Heat becomes more of a concern with the Pi4, especially where airflow will be restricted in this setup, so I added a fan (which did help a lot!).
