Both of my stations experience a fairly regular problem of the RTL-SDR somehow disassociating and then getting “purple” waterfalls. This happens every few months.
The solution is very simple. “Sudo Reboot” or simply unplug the pi and then plug it back in.
I’m wondering if there is a way (via a post observation script or something) that I can force my station to reboot maybe once a month? I would want to do it so that it was “smart” and didn’t foul an ongoing observation - so I don’t thing a simple cron job would work. Any suggestions for doing this? Or warnings against it?
