As many of you know I have recently gotten my Technicians Lic to operate my Ham Radios, after 1 year of going back and forth on what I wanted to accomplish I will start with the digital and more hands on approach to this new hobby. This is a project that did not take me much to start as I know about the Debian and RaspBerry Pi platforms.

Lets get started with what we need to get the basics working.

What you need:

Raspberry Pi 2 ( More processing power)

 

pi2

USB Sound Card

sound card

1x 2.5mm to 3.5 mm audio Cables

 

220_main

1x 3.5 to 3.5 mm audio cables

 

A handheld Radio with the 2M band or 70cm bands. ( Ensure to run this in Simplex mode unless you have full permission from the Repeaters Owner to run this on their repeater)
