I am running WSJT-X on a receiver a couple feet from the RPi, and I can see
(and hear) the beautiful tone
from the radio and in the waterfall, but the tone stops after only a few
seconds, despite the program thinking
that it is still transmitting.
I first tried it on my newest Pi 3 B+, and thought that maybe it was the

The shortest transmission printout on the screen is 110.669 seconds, and
the longest was
110.688 seconds. But the tone in the receiver only lasts 5 seconds on
