My new HamClock

I finally got the hardware for the HamClock and installed the free software. It really looks like a labor of love on the part of its creator, Elwood Downey, WBØOEW.

I show the ISS footprint, for the occasional APRS signal from/to it, and DX cluster reports from zones near where I live.

The hardware is a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B - 8 GB, with a 7" inch Touch Screen. This particular screen is nice in that the Raspberry Pi just plugs in on its back, so no dangling cables are needed.

If I should change something, I might have opted for a larger screen. On the other hand, it is nice that it doesn't take up so much space on the desk.
