Was using a pi zero, rtl-sdr.com V3 dongle for serving flight aware. Raspbian stretch.
Mlat kept dropping out (even though I am regularly synchronised with 600+ other receivers)
Thought it was CPU overload so moved set up to RPi 3B. Raspbian buster, CPU load way lower. CPU temp never over 42 degrees Celsius.
Mlat still randomly drops out.
USB issue? Can I do anything about it other than restarting, stopping dump 1090, switching on bias tee from command line, restarting dump 1090?
I have some shell scripting experience, so is it possible to write a script that detects the non synching in the logs and then does the restart process as described?
Thanks for reading. Suggestions welcome.
