This is wonderful… just a bit late for the January 14th mtg of my local ham club KARS (Kootenai Amateur Radio Society),
which I was hoping to add to our hands on Digital Modes lab for the mtg presentation,
but I’ll get one of the below and do a presentation later.
We have many technicians, some moving to General, some trying for their Extra and many new hams.
I’ll wait for the announcement, but know I’m VERY interested. :-)
If there is any chance of a prototype that I can display as early advertising… know that’s an option.
I already have a Pi3 B+ with 32G MicroSD card with image installed and the startup script is waiting for my node number.
