DRAWS Video #4

Steve McGrane <temporarilyoffline@...>

Its been a while, but now that my radio is back from factory service, I got the kick in the pants I needed to make another video.

This video is all about how to make a bootable backup of your SD card in case mayhem strikes.

Take a look and let me know what you think by clicking like or dislike:

Next up will be a JS8 Video, Stay Tuned!

Thank you for your video. It makes light work to back up your RPI.

All very good answers so far.  But since you specifically asked for my opinion, I guess I should oblige...

HAM is "A hobby of a thousand hobbies", so even though your radio has a built in sound card, and wasn't really built for mobile operation... DRAWS might be a "cheap" GPS option.  With the capabilities this Hat offers, the community might offer better features in the future that you can't live without.

For me, I'm looking to build out a mobile station with "DC to Daylight" and all the apps that go with it.  Eventually I'd like to do APRS, FLDigi for transmitting both data and files, chase satellites and even some CW in the park.

If you find value in using the Pi platform for Rig Control and WSJT-X digital modes only, then you probably won't need the DRAWS hat.

I can't really even begin to list off all the things that could be explored through this platform.  Would be great if there was an open Wiki were we could contribute some documentation and experiences.  How long would the list be?

I already own a signalink and I got the hat to use in place of the signalink... but in my defense, none of the radios I own have a built in soundcard.
