My name is Bob Recny. I’m an electrical engineer and Amateur Radio operator, call sign N8SQT. I’ve been in the computer industry in one way or another for nearly 30 years. I received my Amateur Radio license in 1992. I’m currently providing design consulting through my company, The Positive Charge, LLC. The ultimate goal is to create my own product line and the reason for being here on Kickstarter.
Like many of you, I’ve been using the Raspberry Pi for several projects. One of the issues that I’ve run into is the lack of DC power, especially when trying to operate several USB peripherals. That little 5V, 1A supply just doesn’t cut it, so how do you get more power?
Nearly all Amateur Radio equipment runs off of a 12V supply, well, anywhere from 10-16V depending on the source. Wouldn’t it be nice if the Pi could also run from that same source? That’s where I designed the the perfect topping for your Pi… no, not a scoop of ice cream, but what I’ve called the “Pi-Go”. Now you can include your Raspberry Pi in your Go-Kit and power it from the same source as your radios.”
