Raspberry Pi 3 DXSpider Installation


I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Hello good afternoon
I already got my dxspider to work
but nobody can connect, and installed the spider with its manual, I can connect to the nodes that I have but the nodes that want to connect to me, not reviewed everything and I think it’s okay, in the moden I have opened the 8000 , but I can not get any callsign to connect to my node.
Some idea of what might happen.

Hi Richard.
Thank you very much for your instructions on how to install the DXspider on Raspberry.
It was simple enough even for a novice like me.
The only thing I can’t do is start the Raspberry automatically.
I also created SV5FRI files, but it was useless.
Can you help me understand why?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Rich,
Thanks for this excellent step by step guide for a DXCluster using RP3. Your guide worked for me, actually better than the others as they missed some steps out that a novice like me didn’t know how to solve.
Only problem I had was in step 6 after the git clone … RP3 replied ‘git command not known’ ? sudo apt-get install git solved that one. I am using the Raspian Buster lite image so minimal installation. Otherwise works fine as local cluster for my club.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
