On May 9th, 2021 we celebrated the first birthday of the Raspberry Pi Net on the ROC-HAM EchoLink Conference node 531091. We had stations from all over the world check in to help us celebrate one year of putting on the Raspberry Pi Net. A net that was needed to fill a gap, and we found our niche and here we are one year later and still having loads of fun.

We had over 132 new check ins throughout the year, and have inspired folks to get a Raspberry PI or a Clear Node. We have helped to answer people’s questions and have just had fun serving a good quality net, while embracing this technology and bringing others to our Raspberry Pi family.

To celebrate out first anniversary of the Raspberry Pi Net we had a prize giveaway comprising of three great prizes. We had the raffle for the prizes at the end of the net drawn by Declan 2W0KYH who is only thirteen years old and yes he did have permission to stay up late.


Our First Prize was a PI400 COMPLETE KIT which was generously donated by DAVE GW8SZL.

Congratulations to our first prize winner MIKE KE0FFT from Illinois.


Our Second Prize was a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ 1.2GHz CPU +1 GB RAM + Micro USB Power Adapter which was generously donated by JOHN W2JLD.

Congratulations to our second prize winner FRED KC8USA from Michigan.

Our Third Prize was a USB 3 device which has windows 10 Pro (Wor) on it which was generously donated by MIKE N6DRF (aka FrankenPi”).

Apps included are Netlogger, Chirp, Iaxrpt, MobaXterm, HRD, EchoLink, Python 3, Thonny IDE with gpiozero VLC. The OS has been “debloated” for optimal operation. You can install applications on your own such as MS Office or Libre Office.

Congratulations to our third prize winner LIA KM6CUD
