Each of us has a different idea about what the ultimate raspberry pi build would be or look like. For my station, reducing the cable mess, replacing a large audio interface with a low cost usb audio codec, and creating a lightweight, energy efficient configuration for ham radio data mode operations. Also important was getting my raspberry pi to work off os 12 volts, just like my Yaesu FT-818 and Yaesu FT-891.
In this video, we will go through all the hardward, hardware mods, hats, and software used to make this station the ultimate rasberry pi build for ham radio data modes in the field.
