Hi Zack,

I'd be interested in those suggestions as well because I'm on a similar quest, but for a IC-705. So far it seems to me that something like a surface type tablet is the best option. It will run all day on it's own battery, but that may not be sufficient for your needs. I'm thinking in terms of SOTA or POTA operations. There are the GPD micro computers, but they don't come with a 10" display, which is what I'd prefer.

But I'm interested in using FT4/8 if needed in one of these contests.
Especially since I am very happy with the performance of my recently
acquired FT897D. I could easily make a connector for it. So I have a
question. Are any other Rover/Portable stations using some sort of computer that is small (like a Raspberry Pi) and doesn't draw a lot of current? I
would really be interested in putting something like that together. I'd
like some recommendations.
