Raspberry Pi 3 and TAPR 20m board - short xmission

Hi all,

I recently picked up a Raspberry Pi 3 and the TAPR 20m WSPR board.

Rasbian installed fine, as did the WsprryPi software. Now, when I run WSPR with the command:

sudo ./wspr -s -r W1AW FN31 10 20m

the transmission lasts all of six (6) seconds (obviously when it comes around to the even minute). The program still indicates that it's in TX mode and goes back to waiting after 110.6 seconds.

But, when I use the same WSPR board on a RPi2 (including the same software and commands) it runs just fine.

I performed the experiment on a second RPi 3 and get the same results. So this tells me it's apparently the RPi3 that's at issue.

Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Thanks!
