Use Case:Logging with rig control from iOS/Android devices, for when you don't want to bring a laptop up the mountain. There is no audio transport in Piglet, it won't take the microphone out of your hand. If you're looking for a remote control solution with audio, check out PigRemote.
Description: Piglet is a device that interfaces amateur radios to the popular logging app HamLog on Apple’s iOS and Mac operating systems and Google's Android operating system. HamLog is a full featured logging app that’s been in constant development since March 2009. The Piglet as well as HamLog was designed for amateur radio operators that take their radios out of the shack, to parks, hotels and mountain tops but still prefer a full-featured, software based logging experience. The Piglet device uses Wi-Fi, to expose its built-in serial port via a network connection and is powered via a coaxial DC connection. The Wi-Fi connection can either be Ad-Hoc, Infrastructure or, with recent firmware changes, an autonomous Wireless Access Point so it can operate stand-alone, without the need for an existing wireless network. It includes a custom milled, silk screened enclosure. Rig support includes popular radios from Elecraft, Yaesu, Icom and Kenwood with new radios being added as they’re tested.
For alternative uses, the device works great for managing any serial connected device. For example, it can be used with a computer that is lacking a built-in serial port to manage networking eqiupment. Simply place the computer and the Piglet on the same Wi-Fi network, or create an adhoc network, and telnet to the Piglet to talk to it's serial port.
Piglet is an evolution of Pigtail. It is much smaller and the battery has been removed. Version 3 of the Piglet moved from Anderson Powerpoles to a DC coaxial connector and brings the DIP switches close to the edge of the enclosure so you can access then from the outside.
