It's Not Just About Ham Radio

The Arduino is a powerful micro-controller. Its inputs can sense anything, its outputs can control anything and you control the logic in the middle.
The Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi is a tiny, inexpensive computer on a board. It has USB ports, HDMI screen output and can be the brains behind some incredibly smart gadgets.
