Goodbye Raspberry Pi

Hello Operators. My raspberry pi journey started with the Ultimate Raspberry Pi build a couple of years ago. Since then, Linux and the Pi tutorial have remained regular features on the channel. Unfortunately, with high demand and uncertain availability, I may be saying goodbye to the Raspberry Pi, for my portable ham radio ops.

In this episode of the OH8STN ham radio, we are discussing replacing the raspberry pi 4, with the Microsoft Surface or some other tablet or laptop, as a portable ham radio computer for my Icom IC-705. Top of my list was a windows tablet or laptop like the Microsoft Surface. It would be used for WInlink, FT8, JS8Call, and other ham radio data modes which require capabilities, the Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 can't always provide. Let's take a look at the raspberry pi vs a windows tablet to see if we will be saying goodbye to the ultimate raspberry pi in the field, once and for all.
