Section 2 - Shopping list

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B/B+ $30 (either model B or B+ should work fine)
8GB or larger MicroSD memory card $5 eBay
USB Power Adapter $5 eBay
USB to serial RS-232 interface adapter $5 eBay. Make sure it is Linux compatible.
Serial RS-232 null modem cable FEMALE/FEMALE $5 eBay
Total project cost ~ $50

You can also choose to use a Raspberry Pi Zero which will save you some $15 from the total price, but for the sake of simplicity of this tutorial, we'll be using the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. I've only tested these two Raspberry Pi's, but I see no reason why Virtual Modem wouldn't work with any Raspberry Pi. If you have success with the other Raspberry Pi's, feel free to let me know :)

On to the next part!
