577Re: [Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO] Re: Poll results for Raspberry_Pi_4-Ham_RADIO
- Jan 28, 2013Many of us are interested more in getting ham applications running on
a small linux board than specifically in the RaspberryPi. A single
list would allow us to pool experience and knowledge. Possibly what
we find with one board will apply to another. That's a lot more
efficient that trying to keep up with several separate lists. Also,
it would allow the experts to generate app's that work for several
boards instead of being confined to a single product.
The RaspberryPi appears to have limitations that aren't getting fixed
and may never be fixed, so working with other boards makes sense.
Also, some other lists are specific to some aspect of ham radio. For
example, I, for one, have no interest in D-Star but would very much
like to see one of the open-source codecs running on a small linux board.
So it makes sense to me to open up this list to other linux-based
