Japan calling for help

Hello ,

I am very new to chasing the birds and have a lot to learn, to become a real live ground station do i have to use a Pi or can i use other software ?

Hi @jj1qfm-japan and welcome in the community.

Raspberry Pi is the suggested and supported platform from SatNOGS project. This means that you can run SatNOGS software in other platforms, or even run custom software that will perform observations. However the easiest way to start is with RPi.

Let us know if you have more questions around RPi or the rest parts of the station. Just in case you haven’t found it, there is the SatNOGS wiki where you can find more details for building a station.


or can i use other software
