Is anyone using Raspberry Pi for any portion of their Part 15 stations? I did a search for a thread on the Pi and saw nothing. Just curious what successes there are, if any. Most of the software I see for Part 15 use is Windows based, and I’m not sure a Pi would run Windows very well.

I purchased an R PI a couple of years ago just to play with. It does have audio and video capabilities but being a Windows experienced user with not much Linux experience I can only comment on what “canned” programs I found.
The platform supports Kobe which is an extensive player/server application which can import and play multimedia. As far as using this for a Part 15 radio application, all I can say is it probably would take a bit of research and imagination.
For me, it has been a “fun toy” but not useful for day to day life. Those more talented than I can probably make it work.

The most I would use it for would be a studio clock (https://www.broadcastradio.com/smartsign#Navigator)
Definitely not for music or airplay, because the PWM audio output sounds horrible. But mostly because I would not want to trust my on-air signal to a $35 computer.
