During the February 2015 meeting PARS member, Pete Zawasky AG7C, gave the group a briefing on his personal amateur radio project using the deck of cards-sized Raspberry Pi 2 quad-core, single-board computer (and other components) to allow him remote antenna rotator control via the Internet. The Raspberry Pi computer is a very low cost computing unit that lends itself to learning and experimentation.
