See attachment. You can simply tell the program your call and locator and frequency and duty cycle and run it from a command line.

Hi Stefan,

That looks very nice.  Is there a script for generating RF with a pi?
A 500Hz tone is easy but for higher freqs it seems a DDS is needed.

Hi MF,

Today i've got i 3rd Raspberry Pi. I quickly installed the WSPR softaware and since a few minutes i am transmitting WSPR-2 on 630m, my usual frequency 475.685 kHz.
I'm directly using the GPIO output pin, without an amp stage behind!
The rectangular 3.3V output voltage is passing a cap and an isolation
transformer (FT50-77) as well as a simple pi-filter, because it is a
Raspberry pi! ;-)

I measured an output power of about 10 mW at 50 Ohm. It is now
connected to my MF antenna and transmits in a 100% duty cycle. I
still have to learn how to reduce it but this will not take long.
With 10 mW TX power i managed decodes by 3 stations now.

3 spots:

Does someone have good ears to get a decode from me? :-) It is a challenge! :-)

PS: The signal is so weak that my RX antenna frontend is not overloaded, so at that power level i can transmit and receive to the same time :-) PPS: A small amp stage will follow soon, i intend to use an BS170 running at 5 V.
