Parts List:
Raspberry Pi http://www.newark.com/raspberry-pi/rasp ... /TNCPi.htm
Plastic case from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00APO ... UTF8&psc=1 (many colors available)
12v/5v converter: http://dx.com/p/8s-5a-switch-mode-ultim ... ubec-45214 (shipping takes forever) -- I liked the higher amp capability of this 5v converter for future expansion options; old cell phone car chargers would work too.
RP-TNC Jumpers http://www.ebay.com/itm/WIFI-router-ext ... 1126502168

Raspberry Pi runs APRSC and APRX for i-gate and aprs-is functionality. Connected to wrt-54g mesh node for network connectivity
