WSJT-X on Raspberry Pi 3
Gotta RPi3 and want to run WSJT-X to join the thousands of ham already using this mode?
This is pretty simple to do on the Raspberry Pi. One thing to note
is, the repositories are VERY outdated so do not download from them.
The version available on the repository does not even include FT8!!
The workaround is quite simple following these easy steps using the Terminal on the RPi3.
- sudo apt-get install dirmngr
- sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 862549F9
- sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Add the following to the end of sources.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ki7mt/wsjtx-next/ubuntu trusty main
Ctrl+X to save and exit
- sudo apt-get update
- sudo apt-get install wsjtx
Answer YES if asked to complete the install
- sudo reboot
Thats it.....just configure the settings in the app and your done!!
