My RasPi works hard 24/7 listening for WSPR en FT-8 signals
from a FT450D and reporting them to WSPRnet and
PSK-reporter. I control the RasPi from keyboard/monitor as
well as remote with VNC and/or SSH.
This worked perfect until a few days ago when the monitor
screen turned black and strokes on the keyboard had no
effect. I could reach the Pi with VNC, but got the message
that the screen was inaccesible, so useless.
Working with SSH turned out be normal and working on the CLI
was still possible.
It turned out that the 8GB SD-card had 0 bytes space left.
In the folder
home > pi > .local > share > WSJT-X > save
I found a great many WAV-files, although I never had
instructed WSJT-X to save anything. After deleting all WAV’s
everything was back to normal.
When I watched what happened inside the save-folder with
Filemanager, I saw that the program generates WAV-files
temporarely. But sometimes WSJT-X “forgets” to delete one,
so after a night listening to FT-8 there were many WAV’s
again. Don’t save was still checked.
What could I do to stop this irregular savings?
