As many Hams know, the Pi-Star Software that runs on the many models of Raspberry Pi Boards have been around a while now and it works very very well.

However, I found this recently and just installed in on new Raspberry Pi 4B 1Gig board today.

It was a very easy process of getting the Image up and running on a Micro SD for the RP.

There is also a great Youtube clip that helps you setup the image on your SD Card and running on your Pi.

It is very very similar to the original Pi-Star software, but with a few more features.

Have fun !! Craig vk3ncr

Yes it’s a great programme, there are versions for widescreen viewing too.

There is a very useful tool included to help calculate and set any BER offset required, which my MMDVM TCXO seems to require. I use it on DMR BrandMeister. I find that the Pi gets a bit hot, for my liking so run it in a large enclosure with a fan as a precaution, just used what I have to hand. Enjoy.

Ah yes.. You are talking about the wrong thing.

The image I sent you was the Log - In screen to the Raspberry Pi running a DV Mega Hat. It is a change from the Pi-Star Dashboard.

Are you running a Hotspot ?
