RigPi Station Server (RSS) was introduced at the 2019 Hamvention at the MFJ booth. Howard Nurse, W6HN, the RigPi software author, demonstrated this exciting new product.
RSS can be ordered now from MFJ Enterprises. The software is open source and can be easily modified.
The RigPi Station Server (RSS) uses a Raspberry Pi for controlling radios, keyers and antenna rotors. It includes add-on boards for audio and Morse code keying.
The RigPi Keyer generates perfect Morse code using the popular K1EL WinKeyer chip. RSS will be available from MFJ soon.
The RigPi Audio board provides input and output audio for VoIP or other digital audio processing programs. It has I/Q auxiliary inputs for use in Panadapters. RSS will be available from MFJ soon.
Introducing the RigPi Station Server, MFJ-1234.
You can control your station from any web browser, including Windows, Mac, Chromebook, iPhone and Android.
Software for RigPi will be available on GitHub as a free, open-source download. Add your own features to RSS!
RSS is ideally suited for emergency communications. Most RigPi Station Server functions are available even when power, Internet and Cell services are down.
The Raspberry Pi is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The Raspberry Pi is a complete computer. In addition to running ham radio programs, you can use it for email, browsing the web, and find software for just about any application you wish.
RigPi Station Servers can be linked to each other through an ad hoc Wi-Fi network, the Internet, or by radio.
