GCARA June Club Meeting

June 28 @ 19:00 - 21:00 EDT

Please join us on June 28, 2022, at the GCARA General meeting held on Zoom.

This month we invited Jason Oleham (KM4ACK). Jason is an Amateur Extra, Raspberry Pi Enthusiast, Developer of Build a Pi, and YouTuber.

He is a huge fan of the tiny little Raspberry Pi computer and uses them on a daily basis for all things ham radio. During the early years of learning Linux and the Pi, he was often frustrated with the complexity and various ways to install applications. Another pain point was online tutorials that often assumed the user had previous experience with Linux. With no formal computer programming training, he began to write Build a Pi (BAP) learning to code as he went.

BAP is a Linux script written in Bash that makes it as easy as possible for someone with little to no Linux experience to get a Raspberry Pi up and running with ham radio applications. BAP does the heavy lifting for you. Jason’s primary modes of operation are JS8call, Winlink, and APRS. Interested to know what got him into ham radio? This video explains the tragic event. https://youtu.be/XSCxKsl-83M
