Mike’s presentation

The Raspberry Pi series of low-cost single-board computers were developed to promote teaching of basic computer science in schools. However, they have become extremely popular and are selling well outside the original target market including in amateur radio. Well-known expert Mike Richards, G4WNC sets out to provide the basics of the Raspberry Pi, alongside making them work in an amateur radio context.

About Mike

Mike has been involved in radio and electronics since his childhood days. Following a 42-year career with BT, Mike—who was first licensed as G8HHA—turned to computing in the early 70s where he experimented with radio data links between his Compukit UK101 and a friend’s TRS-80. That spurred him on to get his Full licence, G4WNC, where he has maintained an interest in digital modes. Mike’s writing career began some 25 years ago when he took over the PW RTTY column from Ron Ham and has been writing reviews and regular columns for many radio magazines including RadCom. His latest endeavour has been the well-received book Raspberry Pi Explained for Radio Amateurs, published by the RSGB.
