Raspberry PiGate Presentation

Next meeting, 20th June, will have a short presentation and Q&A session on the Raspberry Pi and RTL-SDR dongle based APRS iGate that now resides at the club. It is a chance to understand how to use the versatile and cheap RTL-SDR dongle and that Raspberry Pi gathering dust in the corner of your shack as an APRS iGate.

The MX0WRC iGate can be seen on APRS.fi and was set up using the direwolf software and was easy enough to do. There is plenty of scope to hook one up to an existing 2m rig, develop your own digipeater or even listen out for the ISS as it passes over.
