I am setting up a more portable QRP station for POTA and more! Step #1 Radio:
QRP radio requirements:
1. HF is all I need
2. Must have its own battery
3. Internal Tuner
4. QRP, please!
I have been “messing about” with the Raspberry Pi for a couple of years now. One of the great uses for the Pi is general-purpose computing for small-scale projects. One of those projects is Amateur Radio. Most of our application needs for a dedicated station computer work well on the Pi.
Here is my second YouTube video on my portable ham station:
In this video, I show how to set up the Pi from scratch and install a system of managing Ham Radio applications on the Pi.
Many Thanks to fellow YouTube publishers who have helped me out along the way here.

I am getting close to the final station setup. Yesterday we had some fun testing, and I am making some minor changes to how the station will fit together. Here is a short video from yesterday’s operation and testing.
Hope you all are enjoying Amateur Radio and taking some time for your hobby.
73 for now, KE9A
I found out what the problem with my big loop antenna was! I have a bad lightning arrestor. Polyphaser here I come.
As I write this I am doing the final uploads to my new YouTube Channel of two videos about how I am building my Portable Ham Radio Station!
A good day.
