This brand new card is based on my Data Modes column in the June 2020 edition of PW magazine. By combining a standard DVB-T TV dongle (RTL-SDR dongle) with a Raspberry Pi you can create a very simple but effective, APRS, iGATE receive node. This is a great way to contribute to the local APRS network at very low cost.
The ideal Pi model for this APRS node is the Pi-Zero-W. This model has adequate processing power and includes Wi-Fi that can be used for the link back to the home Wi-Fi network. By combining the Pi-Zero-W with an RTL-SDR dongle you can build a very compact and economical APRS iGATE node.
With each order you will receive a high quality class 10, 16GB, microSD card, loaded with the Raspberry Pi Operating System, Dire Wolf packet software and rtl-fm SDR receiver software. I also include 8-pages of printed instructions and direct support if you get stuck!
