Staion Integration using Rasberry PI's?

Is anyone doing interesting stuff in the shack utilizing Rasberry PI's ?

I use them a lot to control devices and to talk to my 6700 via ethernet.

I think it would be neat/fun to use ALEXA and a PI for station control.

    Check out Node Red. Runs on a Pi and we've been integrating a lot of equipment and software, including Flex radios, rotors, amps, tuners, etc.

    Is there a Node-Red flow to control a AntennaGenius 8x2 switch?

    Dave, WO2X, has published an Antenna Genius Flow. Download the "AG2x8_with_N1MM_integration.json" file from the Ham Radio Node-Red Forum.

    Here is a link to Daves files on the forum:

    You have 2 of the best NodeRed guys where. Grab a PI and dig in. :)

    I have Mike. Alan and Dave have both helped. I have the main thing, the AG switch working fine and am slowly finding my way around NodeRED. I am very familiar with the Pi and Linux, this graphical method is not so easy for me.

    Yes, Node Red is a lot of fun.

    Conny, N5HC took my 2x8 flow and added to it. The one I have posted in the file section is the result of his and my contributions. It natively supports 2 stacked 2x8 switches and the code is there to add the additional nodes to go with a stack of four 2x8 switches for a 2x32 setup :-)

    I only have three antennas.....
