"Ferrite" is the working name for an amateur radio focus containerized desktop. It is to be based on Universal Blue https://ublue.it/ and is inspired by Ham-Pi, PiSDR, and other related projects that try to corral a whole bunch of ham radio software into a single distribution. The underlying distribution comes from Fedora.
Target hardware includes the RTL-SDR and Airspy HF+ software defined radios. I hope to be able to tune and process and decode ADS-B, APRS, AM, FM (narrowband, wideband, and stereo), SSB, a variety of digital voice modes including DMR, and to decode slow scan TV and radiograms. I'll do the receive side first, and then look at transmitters.
Universal Blue targets a wide range of hardware, so I'll let that project shape my selection of what machine this runs on. The Raspberry Pi would be great to get everything running on, but I'll also hope to get a Chromebook ready setup to better support mobile and portable operations.
