Hi Mark and all,

How much *skill* is needed to do a port?  I'd love to have a Nortel 
NTBW50AA / NTGS50AA GPSDO source (while the Z3801 continues to work, it 
does fail self-test), but the thought of having yet another Windows PC 
going in the shack gives me hives.  (okay, maybe not that bad, but...)

A Raspberry Pi on the other hand doesn't take up much space, has the 
ability to be remote controlled easily, and would probably lead to me 
purchasing one of the Nortel units.

So I'd love to see a port, but given that my last programming effort was 
FORTRAN 77 and Windows basic (although I'm learning C for the MSP430 at 
the moment) I wonder if I've got anywhere near the skills to do it...

thanks much and 73,
ben, kd5byb
