For most, personal computers have become an essential tool in getting things done quicker, easier, quieter and in less space than before. When radio amateurs connect a personal computer to a radio, it takes the potential of both to a whole new level. Computers in Amateur Radio
provides a practical guide to the possibilities of combining these two technologies.
This second edition of Computers in Amateur Radio includes new material on the phenomenal possibilities of Raspberry Pi and the wide variety of data modes now available. There is a chapter dedicated to the EMC of computers, with information on choosing systems and how to avoid or deal with the interference they cause. This book will assist beginners becoming familiar with an activity, and for more experienced amateurs, it contains reference information and basic fault-finding tips.
