Over recent weeks, I have evaluated a number of configurations for VHF based on Windows and Linux (RPi) to assess their reliability, though it is doubtful that a configuration to rival UIDIGI reliability and availability is likely. Continue reading Towards a reliable APRS iGate
In the continuing trials of APRS digi+iGate servers, an aprx server running on a RPi.

Headless javAPRSSrvr described a trial iGate+digi based on javAPRSSrvr v4.1b5. This article wraps up the trial. Continue reading Headless javAPRSSrvr – trial wrap up
This article describes a trial of javAPRSSrvr on a Raspberry Pi (RPi) as a headless system (ie without integrated screen and keyboard).
Above is the RPi sitting on a TNC-X KISS TNC connected to the TNC’s USB port. In this case, javAPRSSrvr uses the supplied KISS interface, it does not use Linux kernel support for AX.25. Continue reading Headless javAPRSSrvr
