Hi Joe,

As you can see on the image, you can directly generate a RF signal. It works up to 250 MHz, as i read. So you can use this arrangement for all bands up to 2m !

All informations i needed to install/run the API can be found here:

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! :-)

73, Stefan/DK7FC

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.
