You could dig the pi out. It seems the season for failing electronics.

Just watched an Easyjet on a flight Edinburgh - Hamburg do a fast descent & divert to Newcastle. First time Ive ever seen the aircraft details on VRS turn pink then red!

40 miles added to my splat range in one direction - and its only been running a couple of hours :)

Nothing else changed, and the antenna is still wonky as I havent got round to fixing it yet - its been too ruddy cold!.

Something a bit more interesting than the usual array of Flybe's, Ryan Air's Easyjet's & KLM's - TWO Ethiopian Airs visible at once :D
