“Hello Operators in the first video with the DRAWS HAT for the Raspberry Pi, I speculated about the impact this new hardware would have on the ham radio digital mode community.
Well now I have the DRAWS hat in my hands, so we can take a close-up look at what’s in the package, and what the hardware is all about.I’m running a hybrid station. That is to say, I use an Android tablet to interact with a headless Raspberry Pi. My Raspberry Pi is running JS8Call, FLDigi, WinLink, and WSJT-X. my Raspberry Pi Hardware is the 3B+ NW Digital Radio calls it a Digital Radio Amateur WorkStation.
I can’t tell you how stoked I am to finally have this product in my hands. In short, the DRAWS HAT makes integrating the Raspberry Pi with a HF radio easier and less expensive than ever before. Fewer cables, no audio interfaces, no cable mess, and a clean installation.Why we should care about DRAWSTo be honest with you, when I first ran into this device, I thought to myself, wow someone has been watching my videos, solving the problem of integrating the Raspberry Pi, with all the components we need for digital communications. DRAWS is a Raspberry Pi HAT.
This is a purely hardware solution combining several components for digital amateur radio, into a single integrated solution.”
