Amateur Radio is a fascinating hobby that enables amateur techies to experiment with all forms of wireless communication, learn about space weather and the effects it has on worldwide communication, communicate with other radio amateurs around the world, and also get started in space communications with satellites and the astronauts on the International Space Station. Modes of communication available to radio amateurs include Morse code, voice, computer data, wireless VOIP (Voice over IP) like digital voice, imagery and video. Licences to transmit are easily obtained by most, whilst the ability to receive does not require a licence and can be enjoyed by all.

Raspberry Pi 5 is the latest, fastest and most powerful model released to date. Previous versions have been pressed into service for uses in the field of amateur radio, but this new version promises to make communications smoother and enable radio amateurs to truly multi-task whilst communicating.

We will endeavour to show you how to set your Raspberry Pi 5 up with some of the most popular amateur radio applications, connect it to a radio receiver/transmitter and receive/communicate.
