//The Ultimate Portable Ham Radio Computer

The Ultimate Portable Ham Radio Computer

Hello Operators.
In this episode of the OH8STN ham radio, we are discussing replacing the raspberry pi field computer build, with the Microsoft Surface as a portable ham radio computer for data modes. Top of my list was the Microsoft Surface Go 2 tablet for use with modes like WInlink, FT8 with JTDX, JS8Call, and other ham radio data modes which require capabilities, the Raspberry Pi can’t provide. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons to see if we will be saying goodbye to the ultimate raspberry pi once and for all.
