    Thanks, some instructions are confusing though:

    build-essential – more parameters needed?
    # Datei no-rto.conf anlegen – german? + typo (rto = rtl)
    # ergänzen um diese drei Zeilen – german?
    rtl-sdr doxygen – typo(?) (rtl-sdr = rtl_sdr)
    program:rtl_433] – not sure but should this be [rtl_433] instead of rtl_433] ?

      Thank you for the corrections. They should be in by now.

    Hey Andreas, great content and great help. Anyhow I tried your approach and had issues with the rtl_433 command to mqtt so I modified your’s a little while I created a shell file with the RTL_433 command which I entered into the rtl_433.conf. So the solution is working now.

    sudo nano /home/pi/my-scripts/rtl433.sh

    ENTER INTO THE FILE:
    #!/bin/bash
    /usr/local/bin/rtl_433 -F json -R 3 -R 32 -R 86 -R 109 | /usr/bin/mosquitto_pub -h 192.168.1.44 -u -P -i RTL_433 -l -t RTL_433/JSON

    I also modified your
    sudo nano /etc/supervisor/conf.d/rtl_433.conf
    Enter into file:
    [program:rtl_433]
    command=/home/pi/my-scripts/rtl433.sh
    autostart=yes
    autorestart=yes
    startretries=100
    stderr_logfile=/var/log/rtl_433/rtl_433.err.log
    stdout_logfile=/var/log/rtl_433/rtl_433.log

      Unfortunately, I cannot do remote debugging. I do not have the time for that.

      Maybe you log an issue on GitHub. I do not know the program in detail, I am just a user.

    Hi Andreas,
    I dusted off my Raspberry Pi lately, and stumbled across your YouTube channel. I loved it.
    You are full of useful tips, and I did find myself going from “where do I start?” to “I can’t believe I did that and it all works”.
    From my point of view, you represent B-U-I-L-D “Better Understanding Involves Learning and Doing”.
    Thank you so much. Good luck with the QO-100

    Shut down switch question
    I have a real time clock that uses pin 3 , what is the best way to get around this. I am a ham radio operator, and using KM4ACK build a pi 3 script as seen on YouTube.

    Thank you,
    Dave, K4UZM

      I would ask KM4ACK to add such a feature to his build. I assume not only you have this problem. I saw python programs which used other pins than GPIO3

    Surely this is passing the Mqtt credentials unencrypted?

      I assume you are right. I do not care because it is behind my firewall.

    I have set up the weather station and added to homeassistant, My question is about the wind speed/ gust. The figures I would assume are in MPH or possibly KMH how do I find out which. On the RTL_433 it states the figures are in M/s but I don’t this is correct as 9M/s is really windy and when this speed was reported there was hardly a breeze.

    Top work BTW.

      AFAIK my values come in 10 x km/h. The only way you can check is to use a wind speed meter in parallel and compare the values.
