I am using windows as main ham radio operating system, as maybe someone already read in my other posting.
I have my radio (YAESU FT-897) and my rotor-control-interface setup running nearly perfect in the windows envirement.
I would like to participate in SatNogs in times where I am not using my radio. But I can`t unplug and change the setup to a raspberry pi or similiar every time.
So maybe the easiest way would be a VirtualMachine (VirtualBox) which I can turn on every time I don`t use my ham gear.
Does anyone have such a setup?
Is there already a VirtualMachine-Image ready for download?
Do you think the idea would work?
I am installing a Panadapter into my radio to get a second RX way using the same Antennas as when I am using the radio for ham activities.
So I could bring an RTL-SDR Dongle on the second RX which could be used by the VM.
When I turn of the ham radio software the rotor controller could be controlled by the VM too.
Maybe this could help the community a lil.
