Raspberry Pi used with CW Keyer
- Show and Tell--
I use the Raspberry Pi in a not very glamorous role here--as a wifi adapter for the k1el cw keyer.
The audio is a little low on the video to hear the cw.
The script, winkeydaemon.pl, opens up a UDP socket and routes characters to/from wifi-->USB port to the keyer. It didn't work on the Pi initially. I submitted my changes to the script author. You can google it.
The phone UDP keyer is a little conceptual and not too practical. I was having some fun. But young people are used to texting and use phones and tablets instead of PCs and laptops. So I thought this approach might engage them more than typing on a laptop keyboard.
