Hi Mark

Well I have not touched the Direwolf system at Ginini since October last 

It has a battery backed supply (12V runs a 12>5V DCDC converter)

Tiny2 is a junk old modem and demod compared to direwolf. I reckon the 
modem is at least 5dB better .

In the manual there is a SUBSTANTIAL writeup on how to get it going on 
RPi.  like a whol emanual dedicated to it.

I think Pi2 is a minimum.

We use a ODROID C1 because it has a eMMC card (self managing storage) so 
the OS isn't running on some junk unknown SD card in RPi. But RPi is 
OK.... cheap. does the job..... Ginini is 1.5 hours drive  and only 
accessable 9 months a year.
