Transmitter software for the Raspberry Pi

The Raspbian operating system used by most Raspberry Pi users does not come with any software to generate RF. If you wish to use our transmitter boards you will usually have to download, install or compile some some software from other sources, or even write some yourself. Fortunately this is usually not a difficult process.

A few pieces of software that can be used to transmit with your Raspberry Pi are listed below. Please note: This software is not produced by Language Spy Ltd, and any support queries on software should be addressed to that software's developer.

WsprryPi

https://github.com/JamesP6000/WsprryPi

This is a transmitter for the amateur radio WSPR protocol ( http://wsprnet.org/drupal/ ), a beacon protocol designed to test and explore atmospheric radio propagation modes. Receiving stations around the world post their spots to the web site, and it is possible for a Raspberry Pi transmitter to be heard all around the globe given the right band and atmospheric conditions. This software requires an amateur radio licence for use.

Rpitx

https://github.com/F5OEO/rpitx

This software from F5OEO is an exciting development for radio on the Raspberry Pi, using software defined radio techniques to generate AM, SSB, and SSTV modes. Instructions can be found on the GitHub page above. This software requires an amateur radio licence for use.

PiCW

https://github.com/JamesP6000/PiCW

PiCW is a simple Morse (CW) transmitter for the Raspberry Pi. Instructions can be found on the GitHub page above. This software requires an amateur radio licence for use.
