I installed a Backroad Raspberry (BRRB) and a dedicated Wi-Fi network in Campbell. The BRRB is powered by an auxiliary battery and uses 6.7 watts, including the router.
Back-country travelers are using Amateur Radio for wilderness communications because of the greater range. Many have a Citizen Band radio because it is ubiquitous even though the range is limited.
The first version of Backroad Raspberry is released. In this article, we will walk through installing it onto the hardware that we built in the last post. Let’s get going!
I picked up a Raspberry Pi 4 today to reacquaint myself with the latest Pi. It has grown up a lot since the last time I used one. I started thinking about ways it would be useful in Campbell, the overland vehicle we are building out.
