I think my console is broken, but it is in an interesting way (Fine Offset WH1081, Maplin N96FY). The console display is fine, but CumulusMX cannot read it (running on RPi3, Raspbian Jessie). After running for two years it has suddenly stopped making any sense. I have tried starting and stopping CMX, replugging, leaving the batteries out for long periods, no change.

I just wanted to check that there were no CMX settings that could cause the "Ignoring bad data" readings, they are really rather wild.

If it is the console, I think there is no way I can get a replacement, even if Maplin sold them on their own, because of the possibility that it would not match the frequency of the transmitter.

So I am down to replacing the whole lot. Any recommendations for a cheap station, compatible with CumulusMX, that is better than the Fine Offsets? I have had frequent lockups where it needed powering off and on again.

I think I'll try an Oregon Scientific next. I had one in the past and was happy with it
