title: NG7V Station Web Site
This station web site is powered by a Beaglebone computer running a copy of Debian/Linux. The standard cloud9/Bonescript/Red software has been disabled to repurpose the hardware for the task. The Beaglebone Black is an IoT device when purchased from their distributor.
It was a RaspberryPie competitor at one point but has since forked off into IoT country. I purchased mine in 2015 when it first came out. I like my bone because it runs Debian and I feel comfortable operating it from the command line just like my big laptop that runs Kubuntu.
|1||Beagle Bone Black||Main compute engine with metal case|
|1||32gb Micro SD Card, class 10||Permanent additional storage|
|1||USB hub, 7-port USB 2.0||Additional peripherals|
|1||110V/220V 2.0A power supply||Powers the Beaglebone Black|
I selected this configuration because I wanted a low power, fanless system that could host a couple of simultaneous connections. I do not expect my web site to be busy enough to warrant anything more than this. Fault tolerance was not a concern for me.
