[12:05] <two4tea> Hi All
[12:06] <VK5QI_> yo
[12:06] <VK5QI_> you were online a few days ago, but i think you left before anyone could answer..
[12:06] <two4tea> So, I'm running the latest version of auto_rx...
[12:06] <two4tea> ah, it's all good
[12:07] <two4tea> Anyway, I'm running the latest verison of auto_rx on my raspberry pi and the service seems to crash after a few hours
[12:07] <two4tea> Is there a log or something I can use to find out what's going on?
[12:07] <VK5QI_> anything end up in syslog?
[12:08] <VK5QI_> e.g. cat /var/log/syslog | grep auto_rx | less
[12:08] <VK5QI_> (might need sudo to access /var/log/syslog
[12:08] <VK5QI_> any errors that cause auto_rx to completely die should end up there
[12:09] <two4tea> only the usuall 'scanning only frequencies' log
[12:10] <two4tea> Here's the system service...
[12:10] <two4tea> pi@sondepi:~/radiosonde_auto_rx$ systemctl status auto_rx
[12:10] <two4tea> auto_rx.service - auto_rx

[12:10] <two4tea> Main PID: 25459 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
[12:10] <VK5QI_> yeah, you really need to find the logs right at teh point where it died
[12:11] <VK5QI_> surprised it didnt just auto-restart?
[12:11] <VK5QI_> thats what the default systemd service config i provide should have done
[12:11] <two4tea> yeah, not sure...
[12:12] <VK5QI_> you can use grep to filter out just errors and stuff from syslog, e.g: cat /var/log/syslog | grep auto_rx | grep ERROR
[12:12] <VK5QI_> or maybe: grep CRITICAL
[12:14] <two4tea> looks like the RTLSDR isn't happy...
[12:14] <two4tea> May 25 09:14:27 sondepi auto_rx[305]: 2022-05-25 09:14:27,448 ERROR:RTLSDR - RTLSDR with serial #0 is not present!

[12:14] <VK5QI_> aha
[12:14] <VK5QI_> and then auto_rx will die because it doesnt have any more SDRs to use
[12:14] <VK5QI_> yep
[12:15] <two4tea> and under critical... May 25 21:44:04 sondepi auto_rx[25516]: 2022-05-25 21:44:04,611 CRITICAL:Error in configuration file! Exiting..
[12:15] <VK5QI_> so its probably not starting because the rtlsdr has died completely
[12:15] <VK5QI_> this can be power related
[12:15] <two4tea> its an old raspberrypi2
[12:15] <VK5QI_> ahh
[12:16] <VK5QI_> i mean, i ran auto_rx on a rpi2 for years
[12:16] <two4tea> yeah? maybe my setup is dodgy
[12:16] <VK5QI_> but yeah, it can be sensitive to power
[12:16] Kodar (~Kodar@93-142-3-130.adsl.net.t-com.hr) joined #highaltitude.
[12:16] <VK5QI_> i wouldnt really recommend a rpi 2 for auto_rx anymore tbh
[12:16] <two4tea> I've had the LNA that was infront of the RTL-SDR blow up
[12:17] <VK5QI_> it should *probably* still work though, at least for one rtlsdr
[12:17] <VK5QI_> i just havent tested on anything less than a RPI 3 in a long time
[12:17] <two4tea> I don't have anything better than a RPI 3! haha

[12:18] <VK5QI_> rpi 3 definitely works, my main station runs on one of those
[12:18] <VK5QI_> but yeah, rpi 2 *should* still work, you might just be having power issues
[12:18] <two4tea> I have one, but I'm using it currently for home assistant
[12:18] <VK5QI_> might be something in dmesg
[12:18] <two4tea> ohhh

[12:21] <VK5QI_> dunno, havent really sen that one before
[12:21] <two4tea> hmmm
[12:21] <two4tea> might try a different power supply for good measure
[12:22] <VK5QI_> sdr plugged straight into the rpi?
[12:24] <two4tea> yep
[12:24] <two4tea> and a usb wifi dongle on a short usb extension cable
[12:25] <VK5QI_> mmk, together they can draw a bit of power..
[12:26] <two4tea> yeah
[12:26] <two4tea> psu is 5v @ 2.1a
[12:26] <VK5QI_> the issue is often more voltage drop in the path through to the usb devices
