I love things that related to programming and IT technical. Ya because of my background. So this time, I am thinking to built an APRS igate at my house at Puncak Alam. So I start doing some research about it and decided to give a try to built this using Raspberry Pi 3. So here is the list that I bought a few days ago:

  1. 2 unit of Raspberry Pi 3 (from RS Component RM168/unit)

  2. 1 unit Power Supply 5V for Raspberry Pi (from RS Component RM40)

  3. 1 unit of TNC-Pi (from 9M2TPT with exchange 1 Raspberry Pi 3)

  4. 1 unit of 7Inch HDMI LCD Touch Screen (from Lazada RM185)

  5. 1 unit of LCD Case Holder (from AliExpress RM15)

  6. Homebrew Data Cable FT-8900R (core material RM30)

  7. Wireless Keyboard and Mouse (RM180)
