After receiving a Raspberry Pi 2 from Element 14 Australia, the first thing I attempted was to compile and run WSPR 3.9 with a Signalink USB Soundcard (IC-7000 with a dipole converted from a broken G5RV). I followed the instructions of G4FRE (http://g4fre.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/wsjt-on-raspberry-pi.html) except for an updated URL for the SVN repository (and using revision 2840 of the WSPR code).

I have erased the logs from the screenshot, I wonder how many watts the stations are running.... I thought WSPR was meant to be run at QRP....

With a relatively new ICOM IC-7000 running 5 watts to a homemade dipole fed with a RG-58 cable, I operated on 7, 10, 14, and 28MHz bands. Thanks to all who copied my transmission. Here is how the tally looked when I shut down my rig -

I built a Softrock RXTX Ensemble transceiver for 40m/30m/20m. Running it with WSPR 2.11 r226, I made my first contacts with the transceiver today, running it with a pack of rechargeable cells, wired to a Creative EMU-0204, with no PowerSDR or VAC. I will be describing my setup in a separate entry soon.
