Ham Radio 360: Micro-controllers & Linux Episode 43: with KJ6VU and KF7IJZ

Ham Radio Micro-controllers & Linux

*Listener Review of this show added to bottom of page


A long time coming; Jeremy and George gather this time through to discuss Micro-Controllers and Linux for the Ham Radio Operator!


Cale is away, so you know it’s gonna be a good show with the guys!  Listen in as they describe all the different types of Micro-Controllers, Software and Hardware, Things to avoid and how to get the most from the Makers ‘best friend’!

Comment: Well done gentlemen! That is the most information delivered about microcontroller and embedded Linux systems related to ham radio, and other applications, that I have heard in any podcast, ever. This is great information to enable anyone, whether an EE, or just an interested consumer to build a project based on either of these closely related technologies. KJ6VU and KF7IJZ are really well informed and articulate on all things ham. Fantastic!


  1. Great show guys! You put some good information out there. You did leave out a model of Raspberry Pi…the Zero. It costs all of $5 and is about the size of a memory stick.

  2. Great job on doing a very broad look at the main micro-controller boards out there and putting together a list of show notes. The only ting this episode assumed about the listener is that they already had work with linux as an operating system and with Debian in particular. By the end of this podcast I was not only wanting to break out my Raspberry Pi again but wanting to get several Adruino Unos for making projects. Looking forward to the follow-up podcasts. 🙂

  3. Boy am I lost. I’m an analog guy living in a digital world. I’m just trying to get a reliable commo system up for my family. They don’t even understand conventional radio let alone this. I guess I have a whole bunch of learning to do . Just got my ticket this year so I am on an up hill learning curve for sure. Great show, always glad to see you guys join Kale for the show. I’d like to hear a show on NVIS if you guys have the time.

  4. Thanks for the show. I have not yet dipped my toe in the micro-controller pool. This is answered a lot of questions I have. Looking forward to the next podcasts.
