Python Panadapter for KX3 and UHFSDR
This has been done before with a RaspberryPi... but I found it lacked a bit on raw grunt and the tiny TFT was, well tiny... the Banana Pi with a dual core 1GHz CPU and 1GB RAM etc is an interesting option as almost all hardware is an upgrade from the earlier RaspberryPi, who (whom?) have said they will not update the RaspberryPi hardware until 2017) So I will be taking a look at using it and I will also employ a more friendly 7" LCD (ebay) with HDMI and a touch screen.
I don't want to grab an image that belongs to anyone else however these are what I will use
7" screen + BananaPi + KX3
+ bit of Python and a BananaPi flavour of Rasberian OS and you get this...
